Microsoft Windows Server 2016 is on its way!
All the best bits were highlighted in another session I went to. One of the main ones was the Microsoft 2016 Servers ability to interact with TPM version 2.0. In a nutshell, this allows the ISP or Cloud provider to point to the owner should our friends NSA or GHCQ want to look at the server. Microsoft has nice sidestepped the issue of encryption. As with TPM 2.0 enable hardware. If, you can’t talk to the certificate holder for that hardware. Nothing is going to happen. You can bounce in a pick up the Hard drive or the complete unit. Without the system being able to retrieve the certificate. Then, the whole lot is grounded. Wiping out any of the drives will just provide an encrypted drive that you cannot read on any system that cannot talk to its Security systems. Nicely, done there Microsoft. That should stop your friends in government putting you in an untenable position in terms of data security.
Dawson and I seem to think we were the only old plods left!
The young smiling face of youth. I remember when I was that bouncy! Secondly, that this Cloud stuff it is very busy and noisy by all accounts. I’m still waiting for Air Traffic control to come to a sort this mess out!
But, as I was walking around the show. I had a feeling that I got when I watched Chitty chitty bang bang many years ago. When the Child catcher turns up with sweets and ice cream. All of which were free.
Until of course the cage is closed and the pretty decorations come down!
Don’t forget. If, you do set up on Cloud. Make sure that you can migrate away should you need to. Or, you may end up with a larger bill than the CIO was expecting.
Well, that’s me done for today.
As always. If you have a comment. Please feel free to do so.
