CrowdSec for Absolute Beginners

This is a basic workshop on installing and configuring CrowdSec, a FOSS IDS/IPS tool which reads log, detects attacks and shares information about those attacks with other users in an anonymous way.

The workshop will be held on Friday 7 October from 5 PM to 7 PM.

Please note that a conference ticket is required for workshop participation.

You'll learn how to install CrowdSec on Linux and install and configure the NGINX bouncer which mitigates threats based on information from the CrowdSec agent and the community. You'll also learn the basics of what CrowdSec is, how it works and how it can help you protect your infrastructure against the bad guys utilizing the power of the crowd.
