At @bsdcan, the "Network Management with the OpenBSD PF toolset" session has started, slides at home.nuug.no/~peter/pftutorial (@stucchimax and I alternating)

Possibly in the spirit of the upcoming holidays, this morning somebot in .cn tried delivering mail to new imaginary friend Jesus Mao:
Apr 17 06:08:51 skapet spamd[32133]: new entry 106.13.14.227 from <ywlxo@funnyconsult.com> to <jesusmao@bsdly.net>, helo funnyconsult.com

If you're interested in spam filtering, it is likely instructive to take a peek at the archive of google's failures to classify my greytrapping reports correctly home.nuug.no/~peter/googlefail - the reason I started cc'ing to my gmail account no longer applies, so no new entries will be forthcoming.

bsdly.net is my mail and misc other stuff service, which to a large subset of the world looks like a honeypot.

The schedule for BSDCan 2019 is now available at bsdcan.org/2019/schedule/, registrations will start soon. I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in Ottawa in May!

Aha. My main source of *useless* DMARC reports (while the list of imaginary friends at bsdly.net/~peter/traplist.shtm has been growing at an unprecedented rate recently) actually base their own SPF info on PTRs so their *own* records actually do not resolve. Happy weekend, everyone.

The EuroBSDCon 2019 call for papers is open, see the full text at 2019.eurobsdcon.org/cfp/ and use the links therein to submit (until May 26, 2019) and/or gather useful information.

The call for papers and presentations for @eurobsdcon 2019 (September 19-22 2019 in Lillehammer, Norway) is open. Please submit your talk or tutorial proposal through the registration system at registration.eurobsdcon.org. See you in Lillehammer!

ok, somebody's getting desperate:

Jan 25 00:50:53 skapet sshd[47253]: Failed password for invalid user lost+found from 36.67.120.235 port 52691 ssh2

Jan 20 21:02:05 skapet sshd[40305]: Failed password for invalid user ibsen from 218.95.229.142 port 52070 ssh2

And it's possible you don't have to be Norwegian to feel a little bad about making that a spamtrap.
