IGEL Tech Memories from Sébastien Pérusat – January 2022

Dear IGEL Community,

What a start into 2022, we all thought that our Security Officers could have a smooth intro into the new year but Log4j and Polkit decided to turn upside down the forces… We tried to be as quick as possible, I would pretend: we did. That’s one of the reasons why the IGEL OS is so interesting to me! I don’t want to spread flowers all over the IGEL world, but our goal is to be reactive because YOU need to be reactive because the world changes in a manner of security!

January is typically a month for Kickoffs, updating Labs, redesigning Demonstrations… I’m aligning it to it to 100% 😃


Now let’s look at January in detail:

We shared the following in the IGEL INSIDERS & VIPs group, a private channel for award winners who have selflessly raised the bar through their contributions to others and community leadership:

  1. Our Insiders are in a great position to take direct influence on the upcoming IGEL OS12 GUI and a Software deployment system
