syslog-ng at CeBIT 2003
CeBIT is one of the largest IT trade shows in Europe and this year it will
be a good meeting point where syslog-ng users and developers can meet and
discuss the future of this successful open source project. You can find us
at stand A15 in Hall 8.
Syslog-ng development is currently funded by BalaBit IT Ltd, a successful
Hungarian security firm now heading to the international market with its
software products, primarily syslog-ng and Zorp.
I assume syslog-ng itself does not need to be introduced here. The news
about syslog-ng is that syslog-ng as a product will be announced.
Zorp is a firewall product primarily targeted at medium to high risk
environments. The firewall core has the following important features:
* application layer protocol analysis, enforcing 100% RFC compliance for
the following protocols:
FINGER, FTP, HTTP, IMAP, LDAP, LP, NNTP, PLUG, POP3, SSL/TLS, RADIUS
Oracle SQLNET, TELNET, TFTP, WHOIS
* flexible decision engine, so both decisions and exception to those can
freely be described
* modularity so you can attach different proxies together in a way similar
to how protocols are assembled together (HTTP within SSL)
* strong authentication support
* integrated PKI for X.509 key management
Zorp Professional is distributed as a complete solution with its own
operating system (Zorp OS), management server (ZMS) and management console
Both Zorp and syslog-ng is available as free software under the terms of the
GNU GPL, though some of the functions are missing or are limited.
Our visit to CeBIT is aimed at the introduction of Zorp and syslog-ng to the
commercial sector. We are primarily focusing on companies which are able to
provide either Zorp or syslog-ng related support and system integration
Interested parties should contact mailto:email@example.com to make
appointments during the trade show.
