I am delighted to announce that earlier this week I was accepted into Juniper’s Ambassador program. To say that I am completely honored is an understatement. Working with Juniper’s products and technologies has been a labor of love for me dating back almost 18 years, since my first introduction to Junos back in early 1999 — as such, I am thrilled to join the ranks of my esteemed peers, whom I sincerely consider to be the best in the industry. A special thanks goes out to Andy Green, Director of Education Services Americas at Juniper Networks for nominating me and to the rest of the Juniper Ambassadors who apparently endorsed that nomination with a resounding yes. I look forward to seeing and collaborating with all of you on the J-Net Forums!
Juniper took a big step forward in rounding out their certification programs by announcing a new Design Training and Certification curriculum, focusing on best practices and techniques that can be used across the spectrum of network architecture and design. Slated to be included in this program are also technologies around software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV).
I am happy to announce that Juniper has just released a new Day One Guide entitled “Junos Tips, Techniques, and Templates 2011“. For this particular Day One Guide, Juniper Networks Books and J-Net joined forces and requested the best and brightest Junos tips and techniques from the Junos user community. In fact, the book was created after a thorough selection process which included reviewing over 300 submitted tips by over 100 individuals on the J-Net community boards at forums.juniper.net.
I am very pleased to announce that several of my security articles have been published on Infosec Island. Infosec Island is an online community focused on the Infosec professional which incorporates elements of community discussion and writings from various security practitioners throughout the industry. It is truly an honor to have been invited to participate and contribute in this forum alongside many well respected writers and colleagues.
The following articles are now available:
Several more articles are in the works and in addition I am working on a very special analysis of the XerXes attack tool used in the attacks against Wikileaks which will be released sometime next week.
