  • 10. Social Issues in Computing in Load Management using Proxmox Talk about what our Dissertation was...
  • 11. Who owns the copyright? ● Institution / University / College / NGO ● How did we know? ● There is more... How ? The copy of the Virtual Appliance is been submitted to the university, hence they own the privilege to redistribut,e modify and run the software OS & As submitted copy can be redistributed with monetary benefits also, we as a team and Proxmox GeBH would not ask for money because it is royalty-free
  • 12. License for the application? ● 'GNU Affero General Public License' – Key points – Why is it different from other licenses? ● Role of GNU/GPL ● Redistributing is Legal, yes! But Key Points : - Affero : For Network based Appliances and Infrastructure With GPL it's advisory to imbibe AGPL for network based appliances However the norms, conditions and rights provided by GPL are justified but do not comply with AGPL Difference and GNU/GPL GPL does not provide clause for Remote Connections hence AGPL came into being Redistributing is legal, yes because the copy holds the same rights, however if it is redistributed without the license; the previous contributor holds no responsibility and is not liable for infringement allegations.
  • 13. What Proxmox says? ● Under Section 2 'Grant of Rights' in Proxmox Copyright License Agreement – Contributor is a Licensee – It's non-exclusive, royalty-free – Right to distribute & modify ● Patent License – The community has right to add your Contribution to their future releases. Explain Proxmox CLA
  • 14. Application Security Concern ● RAM allocation ● Unstable flavor of Linux ● Undesired behavior of Application ● Eavesdroppers ● Screen Freeze Screen Freeze : often the screen freezes due to high Disk I/O or someone is using the IP mischievously Undesired : because somehow the application must be using more resources and putting extra effort, else the VM is busy finishing some other IP's demand
  • 15. Avoiding Leaks ● Allocate RAM on runtime ● Old is good sometimes ● Manage load on existing VM(s) ● Remote access to smart ones only ● 3Rs repair / reorganize / refresh 3Rs :- standard practice of restarting the VM after runtime allocation Old is good, sometimes the earlier version of a distribution which works well and verse is better than the ones which are traveling in space
  • 16. Security Concern in terms of usage ● Who does what when and how? ● High Disk I/O ● Hampering with existing data ● How to monitor? – CCTV, bad option – Logs, still better
  • 17. Climbing a wall! Build a door instead ● Defining roles ● User profiles ● Give Access Rights ● Pop alerts when at risk ● Make it mistake proof Mistake proof : USB jacks How in this? Allocate only the smart ones to access your domain
  • 18. Thank you Any Questions? Harsh Raj Bhatia 11030121033 Rahul Kaveeshwar 11030121050 Rohit Choudhary 11030121053
