Abstract: 

Almost all storage software now includes some Open Source code. Managing security in Open Source code can have unique challenges.

Samba is an Open Source project that has had many security flaws over the years. We’ve had to learn how to handle them, and the best practices needed in order to maintain trust in the project and Open Source in general. This presentation will cover how Samba has evolved in handling security issues, from initial response to working within the storage and security communities including the worlds largest software vendors.

Learning Objectives:
1. Security management from a Samba perspective
2. Open source integration
3. Secure coding techniques
