The General State of yakko and Surronding Affairs
Investigation has been closed(As far as Dr. Trenary knows)
Jason Johnson has a sudo account to access yakko. He has said he would like to do some type of periodic checkin in at his leisure
There has been no formal agreement made as far as when the server can be accessed.
Relying soley on IRC is not a viable option for the future.
Club's Stance on Allowing Access by the CS Department
The computer deparment will have total access to club's server log files
The club would like a schedule of periodic checkins or at least some notice of before the check in with the server.
Jason has already conceded that after he accesses the server he will give us a log of what he did.
The log would be posted publicly for all memebers to see.
We would prefer access to the server to be physical instead of allowin grandom ssh access to the server.
Any agreement should have at least some sort of email trail for our record.
The Future of Servers and Accessibility
Yakko will become soley a production server.
Jazz will be available for member use(via OpenStack)
ssh from yakko and jazz to WMU will be cut off.(Possible exoanded to the TCP protocol)
Member Access to Features
VMs will be limited to 1 x (1gb ram and 1 core) per member and available upon their own request.(Some sort of web interface should be used that allows member to create there own VMs )
Many ISOs will be available(Archlinux, Debian, Ubuntu, Manjaro, etc..)
Memeber's home directories will be limited in space to 25GB as Default
ALL directories outside of /home/ will be open to auditing(By use of auditd)
General Comments about The Servers and Other issues
OpenStack will allow vps through jazz.
There will be NO torrent client on the server.
We can run a scrit that will allow us to scan for copyrighted information by extenstion type or file size(e.g. .mp3).
Auditd will allow us to view the circumstances during which certain commands where used(e.g. ssh, yes)
Preventing copyrighted materials from being on the server is the most sensitive issue for Dr. Carr
If multiple chats are being used for club purposes they need to have access to one another to prevent "Dark Corners" of activity.
No decision on what chat should be used has been reached.
Any who thinks that yakko is secure needs to know that the cs deparment can gain root access at anytime to yakko.
Any advanced paid membership can be refunded if requested.
