Demystifying cyber security technologies: Demystifying user (in)security online
On Thursday, January 18, 2024, within the framework of EDIH DIGI-SI, this year’s first professional-educational seminar Demystification of user (in)security online was held, which was conducted by Assoc. dr. Lili Nemec Zlatolas and dr. Marko Kompara from the Laboratory for Data Technologies at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Informatics of the University of Maribor. In the first part of the seminar, we took a close look at passwords, presented password managers and more advanced methods of authenticating and protecting access to our online accounts. In the second part, we focused on cyber attacks such as identity theft, various forms of fraud (e.g. phishing), harmful software and the like. We regularly organize professional and educational seminars on the topic of demystifying modern technologies. You can follow them here.

Educational seminar Demystifying Cyber Security technologies
On Wednesday, November 29 2023, the seminar Demystifying Cyber Security technologies was held as part of EDIH DIGI-SI. The lecturers at the seminar, assoc. prof. dr. Marko Hölbl and dr. Marko Kompara from the Laboratory for Data Technologies at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Informatics of the University of Maribor, presented various aspects of cyber security. The basics of cryptography, which are the basis of many security mechanisms, digital certificates and public key infrastructure were presented. We clarified concepts such as electronic signature, digital certificate, SIGEN-CA, eOsebna, etc. and possibilities of application in practice. By introducing new possibilities for using biometrics, FIDO 2 the user authentication aspect of PassKey was addressed. We also touched on the future of cyber security in the age of quantum computers and concluded the seminar with a comprehensive approach to information security, an information security management system. We regularly organize professional and educational seminars on the topic of demystifying modern technologies. Follow them at https://digi-si.eu/events/.
On Thursday, January 18, 2024, a demystifying seminar on the topic of online user security will be held online from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. As we spend more and more time online, we often encounter various security threats. In addition to online security, we also put our privacy at risk, something we often don’t think about. In this year’s first demystification seminar, we will therefore focus on concepts and technologies that threaten and protect users online and for which it is important that users recognize them, use them or, understand their benefits. During the seminar, we will discuss various aspects of cyber security. For users to be able to recognize various cyber-attacks, we will devote part of the seminar to these very topics. These will include identity theft, various forms of scams (e.g. phishing), harmful software (e.g. ransomware) and the like. Technologies that can help ensure privacy (eg TOR or VPN) will also be presented. We will look at why passwords are vulnerable and what the conditions are for a password to be secure. We will introduce password managers and why they are good for the overall security of our accounts. We will present more advanced methods of authentication […]

Demystifying blockchain technology in business
On Monday, 4 December 2023 (13:30-17:00 CET) online introductory tutorial on CernVM-FS will be held via Zoom. Tutorial was developed in collaboration with with the CernVM-FS development team. CernVM-FS, the CernVM File System (also known as CVMFS), is a file distribution service that is particularly well suited to distribute software installations across a large number of systems world-wide in an efficient way. The focus of this tutorial is on explaining what CernVM-FS is, how to access existing CernVM-FS repositories (like EESSI), and covering some aspects specific to using CernVM-FS on HPC systems. It is intended for people with a background in HPC (system administrators, support team members, end users, etc.) who are new to CernVM-FS: no specific prior knowledge or experience with it is required. If you would like to attend this tutorial, please register via https://event.ugent.be/registration/event/84b45c41-b98b-4a41-9aae-60f5f9e89440
Online tutorial: “Best Practices for CernVM-FS in HPC”
MultiXscale, in collaboration with CASTIEL 2 WP3 presents an event aimed at the Center of Excellence, the National Competence Center, their network and the end user. The event will take place online on December 5, 2023, from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m CET. Have you ever wished that all the scientific software you use was available on all the resources you had access to without having to go through the pain of getting them installed the way you want/need? The European Environment for Scientific Software Installations (EESSI – pronounced “easy”) is a common stack of architecture-optimised scientific software installations for HPC systems and beyond, including laptops, personal workstations, and cloud infrastructure. At the training you will learn what EESSI is, how it is designed, how to gain access to it and how to use it. A number of presentations will be shown, and access to a resource where you can try EESSI yourself will be given. Please register in advance by 1 December, EoB.
