Talk: IoT has a dark side; #Azure DNS can help; Happy 7th Bday @BostonAzure

Boston Azure is 7 years old!

At today’s October Boston Azure meeting, we celebrated turning 7 years old, and had two talks. I presented one talk related to the Dyn DDoS outage from Friday Oct 21, which illustrated the dark side of IoT since it was used to power a huge DDoS attack on Dyn, taking down Netflix, Github, Spotify, and lots of other sites as collateral damage. In my talk I explained some of the background and how we addressed it with Azure DNS.

Here’s the deck for the “IoT has a dark side” talk:

Jim O’Neil provides some resource relating to his talk. There are listed AS A COMMENT on the meeting page (scroll below the meeting description page to comments – Meetup.com does not allow changing a meeting description after the meeting begins, so amendments tend to be as comments).

And here’s a photo of the evening – taken by @jimoneil (Jim), showing (L->R) Mark (@MHEisenberg), I’m in the middle (@codingoutloud), and @nazik_huq (Nazik Huq) – all who have helped @bostonazure (Boston Azure) thrive through the years. And not to forget about some others who were not present – like @georgebabey (George Babey), @haleyjason (Jason Haley), Michael Stiefel, and @squdgy (Maura Wilder) – who have all deserve credit for the success of the group through the years.

And finally, here’s Jim, the event’s featured speaker and the photographer and tweeter of the above photo. I think this photo was taken by @nazik_huq (Nazik Huq).
