We say this a lot at Red Hat: no single technology vendor holds the key to success, and that includes us.

In our new podcast - Code Comments - we are talking to seasoned technologists at Red Hat partner organizations about pivotal moments they have experienced in technical projects.

Each episode dives into stories, challenges and lessons learned that our guests have encountered in their careers. The Red Hat partner ecosystem represents a diverse and robust group of leading technology vendors, solution providers, integrators and more, all with a unique view on the IT landscape, trends and what the future holds for the industry at large. Like Red Hat, our partners have lived through it all firsthand and there's still so much to learn from each other.

You've probably heard about Red Hat Insights and different services that improve your operational, business and security experience with all Red Hat platforms (if not, I recommend reading the Red Hat Insights blog channel).

The analytical information that Insights collects to power these services has a much greater impact than you might think. In this blog post, we'll give you an overview of where Insights analytics are being used (and you probably didn't even notice). Although this is very much focused on experience with Red Hat OpenShift, less advanced yet similar capabilities are available for other platforms.

Both security issues aren't documented in detail. The security advisories talk about 'Windows Kerberos RC4-HMAC Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability' and a generic 'Windows Kerberos Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability,' correspondingly. From the accompanying knowledge base articles we can see that these vulnerabilities affect use of the standard RC4-HMAC encryption type in the Active Directory Kerberos implementation. It has been known for some time that RC4-HMAC is an encryption type that might be broken, and a recommendation has been to disable RC4-HMAC use in Active Directory environment, enforced via various STIG and CIS profiles for Windows systems.

Wherever your agency is on its cloud journey, I bring good news.

Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS GovCloud, the enterprise-ready cloud services offering, has been designated as FedRAMP 'In-Process', which is a designation provided to Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) that are actively working toward a FedRAMP Authorization with either the Joint Authorization Board (JAB) or a federal agency. Red Hat is currently working towards receiving FedRAMP High certification to allow organizations in highly regulated industries to build and deploy Kubernetes-based applications on ROSA while addressing key government security and compliance requirements.
