verinice 1.12 is out. The new version of the open source tool for the management of information security (ISMS) is an efficient companion for companies, government agencies, consultants and auditors. A perspective for working with vulnerability scanners is just one of many new features. verinice is published by SerNet.
verinice 1.12 introduces the Greenbone GSM perspective. This allows an easy start into managing vulnerabilities by intertwining verinice with the vulnerability scanner Greenbone GSM (OpenVAS). Two new tutorials explain step-by-step, how the results of vulnerability scans are imported and processed. When working with an IS-management system according to ISO 27001 the scanned systems and weaknesses can be used in a risk analysis.
verinice.PRO offers additional advantages: The workflow helps in assigning responsibilities and fixing vulnerabilities while in operation mode. An intelligent adjustment ensures that even after repeated scans duplicates are avoided and only fixed vulnerabilities are removed from the risk database.
Another big change: the whole development process moved to Github. The verinice source code remains open source – and GitHub helps to make the development more transparent.
There are also numerous improvements and bug fixes. More detailed information about features and improvements are listed in the release notes for verinice 1.12. verinice 1.12 is available at verinice.org.

From May 10th to 12th 2016 the SerNet GmbH and the international Samba Team will host the SAMBA eXPerience. The 15th edition of the conference comes along with an innovation: For the first time Berlin will be the place for developers and users from around the world to meet. Sale of "Early Bird" tickets has started already.
"By moving our long established conference to Berlin, we're experimenting a little and looking forward to it", says Chen-Yu Lin, event manager at SerNet. Additionally the organizing committee meets with a wish expressed by the participants. Lin: "Most of our guests have a long journey ahead of them in order to attend the sambaXP. Berlin makes it easier for them and – as an overall attractive venue – may garner additional interest from new participants." The conference hotel RAMADA Berlin Alexanderplatz (Karl-Liebknecht-Str 32nd , 10178 Berlin) is centrally located and "moreover, it is very close to SerNet's Berlin offices", says Lin.
The "Call for Papers" section at sambaxp.org offers all information about the conference topics and more details. Abstracts can be submitted until February 29th. Technical presentations are welcome as are case studies. The conference language is English. However, the organizing team would be glad to see submissions in German or any other language as well.
"Early Bird" tickets for the two conference days are available at 399 Euros until February 29th. As usual the sambaXP kicks off on Tuesday (May 10th) with a tutorial: Tickets for "Managing Samba 4 as domain controllers and Implementing domain trusts" are priced 450 Euro.
John Terpstra is chairman of the sambaXP 2016 again. He is a founding member of the international Samba Team and highly respected author.
