Heading into the summer months is always a nice time of year – school is out, warmer weather, BBQs, beaches, baseball and maybe some vacation time. And hopefully all the Dads had a nice Father’s Day as we dive into our 6th installment of the DC Chronicles. The Chronicles are intended to keep you updated on DevCentral happenings and highlight some of the cool content you may have missed since the last issue and you can always catch up with the links at the bottom. Welcome!
We had 20 new articles published since Volume 1, Issue 5, including 5 new Lightboard Lessons! We really enjoy making these and you, the audience, certainly express your enjoyment in watching. John Wagnon lit some cool security related topics like, Explaining TLS 1.3, What Are AEAD Ciphers? and The TLS 1.3 Handshake while Jason Rahm drew up the F5 software lifecycle and BIG-IP Cloud Edition Overview. Since we’re on Cloud, Chris Zhang also wrote up how to Achieve firewall high-availability in Azure with F5.
We also published a bunch of materials about our new BIG-IP Cloud Edition. BIG-IP Cloud Edition is designed to enable easy to use and fast self-serve deployments of application services in private and public clouds and is composed of BIG-IP Per-App VEs and BIG-IQ CM 6.0. To get the scoop, you can check out the BIG-IP Cloud Edition FAQ, Building Applications For The Rest Of Us With BIG-IQ 6 and Skies Never Looked So Good With BIG-IP Cloud Edition. DevCentral’s Chase Abbott lays out the details.
Moving from Cloud to Security, several vulnerability mitigations from our SIRT team dropped recently. You got coverage for Remote Code Execution with Spring OAuth Extension (CVE-2018-1260), a New BIG-IP ASM v13 Drupal v8 Ready Template, and a New BIG-IP ASM v13 WordPress v4.9 Ready Template. Also filed under Security, Steve Lyons showed how to Configure Smart Card Authentication to BIG-IP Management Interface.
Other highlights include Lori MacVittie’s Three HTTP Routing Patterns You Should Know with Eric Chen’s follow on, SNI Routing with BIG-IP. Chen also gives us Clone Pool Across L3 explaining how you can use the “clone pool” feature to copy traffic to an IDS and/or network monitoring device. Jason continues his Getting started with the Python SDK series covering Working with Statistics and Working with Request Parameters and finally, Jie Gao was DevCentral’s Featured Member for June.
