Date: 19th to 20th March 2024
Location: MAX IV Laboratory, Lund, Sweden

The SIG meeting is also accessible online:  LU Zoom meeting: (password will be given via email and slack)

The online discussion will also happen on slack:

Join us for an intensive two-day workshop, designed exclusively for kernel developers in the Tango Controls community. This event is a unique opportunity to deepen your understanding and practical skills in cyber security, specifically tailored to the Tango Controls system.

Key Highlights:

  • In-Depth Learning: Dive into the intricacies of TLS (Transport Layer Security) as applied to CORBA and ZMQ. Our sessions are designed to enhance your understanding of these critical security protocols in the context of Tango Controls.

  • Hands-On Experience: Roll up your sleeves and engage in practical sessions where you'll compile Tango with TLS. This hands-on approach ensures you leave with actionable skills and deeper technical insight.

  • Use Case Presentations: Present real-world applications and scenarios where enhanced security measures can make a significant impact. These presentations will provide valuable insights into practical implementation and challenges.

  • Security: Participate in discussions to contribute to and learn about the RFC for cyber security in Tango Controls. This is your chance to be at the forefront of setting scientific facilities standards.

Special Guest Appearance: We are thrilled to announce that the main developer of OmniORB, the CORBA implementation used by Tango, will be joining us. This is a rare opportunity to hear first-hand about the TLS implementation in the latest version of OmniORB.

Who Should Attend: This workshop is highly recommended for kernel developers, security experts, and anyone directly involved with Tango Controls development and implementation.

Secure your spot today and be part of shaping the future of cyber security in Tango Controls!
