1) Android's Security Architecture (by Nikolay Elenkov)

This talk will give an overview of Android's security architecture from the bottom up, and present the major Android subsystems and components that relate to device and data security. The talk will cover broader topics that affect all applications, such as package and user management, permissions and device policy, and will also touch on more specific ones such as cryptographic providers, PKI, and credential storage. Some of the changes introduced in the new Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) release will also be explored.

2) Deduplicating Backup Schemes (by Jim Tittsler)

Attic/Borg and Restic are examples of modern backup programs that provide encryption, compression, and data integrity checks that are space efficient even for massive files like virtual machine images. And there are convenience features like mounting your backups as filesystems. Perhaps it is time to replace those old rsnapshot, rdiff-backup and duplicity scripts.

3) Wakame-vdc on Arch Linux (by Andreas Kieckens)

Wakame-vdc is an open source data centre virtualization suite that Andreas (and his colleagues) gets paid to develop. Though it officially only supports Centos, Andreas has been working on some scripts to get it up and running from scratch on Arch Linux using LXC and KVM.

During the presentation Andreas will briefly talk about what Wakame-vdc is, explain what the scripts do to set it up and talk about how he plans to use it to manage his multiple development and test environments Full disclosure: The scripts are still in development and just how much will actually work during the presentation is going to be a surprise. :p 


Other items on the agenda are:
1. Introduction of new members, news about Linux/Open Source,
   general announcements, Q&A
2. Auction (bring any gear that would would like to donate to TLUG) 

All Linux users and supporters of open source code and free software
are invited to attend this Tokyo Linux Users Group (TLUG) meeting.
Membership is open to anyone. There are no membership dues or entrance

After the meeting, we will continue chatting over a few beers.

About TLUG
TLUG is a non-profit, non-political organization established in June
of 1994 to exchange information on the use of Linux and Free Software
Foundation tools. TLUG has an active mailing list, home page, and
regular physical meetings. Discussions are primarily held in English,
but non-English speakers are encouraged to come and participate.
We especially want to encourage Japanese people to attend and will make
efforts to support a bilingual meeting.

month on the 2nd Friday.
