Feedback form is now closed.
The workshop covers the basics of Identity-Management with FreeIPA. Participants will learn how they can manage their users, groups, and hosts as part of a FreeIPA domain. This also includes the management of policies for sudo and SELinux. Since FreeIPA comes with an embedded Public Key Infrastructure, participants will also learn how the framework can be used to request and issue X.509 certificates for users, services, and hosts. Finally, we will cover the integration with Microsoft Active-Directory so that users from AD domains can access resources within the FreeIPA domain.

For the hands-on labs, participants should bring their own laptops and prepare them according to the requirements as outlined here:
