AsteriskFreeSWITCHLinuxOpenLDAPOpenSIPSOpen SourceSuretec








A quick note to say we will be attending UC Expo - The UK's leading Business Enterprise Communications Event.

I know we've been very quiet this year, but there's a good reason for this. Keep your eyes pealed for a big announcement in the next few months about our new VoIP provider (Internet Telephony Service Provider) - SureVoIP (redirects to main site for now).

Gavin.

Yubico key has arrived!

AsteriskCatalystJabber/XMPPOpenLDAPOpenSIPSOpen SourcePerlPostgreSQLSquidSuretec It's taken us a while to get round to ordering one of these Yubikeys from Yubico, but they do look great and have lots of documentation via the wiki.

We're going to be testing them via the pam module for SSH access (and of course using pam_ldap).

So, users in LDAP[?] via pam, and a Yubikey, let's see how it goes!

(will be interesting for logging in a SIP handset via Asterisk or FreeSWITCH that needs one too and all the others technologies Suretec use and support (Catalyst, Perl, PostgresSQL, Squid and more....). We'll see....

Aberdeen Techmeetup tomorrow

AsteriskOpenLDAPOpenSIPSOpen SourceSuretec
We founded the TechMeetup because there is an abundance of events for entrepreneurs to meet investors and lawyers, and next to nothing for techies and tech. Considering the wealth of tech talent around (yes you), why haven’t we made the effort before to get to know everyone – see what else everyone is working on – get help on our projects from others – and talk about some of the cool stuff we’re doing – web apps, software, mobile apps, hardware, games…


I'll be there at the Aberdeen Techmeetup 6.30pm tomorrow:

TIME: Wed, 21th Oct, 6.30pm

VENUE: North Side Meston Building, Aberdeen Uni (map)

SPEAKERS: Gavin MacLean, James Littlejohn

Suretec now have a merchant account!

AsteriskCatalystDojoJabber/XMPPLinuxOpenLDAPOpenSIPSOpen SourcePerlPostgreSQLSquidSuretec It's been a long process, almost 6 weeks, what with the new laws regarding PCI DSS compliance as of the 1st of October 2009, PCI DSS Scans, Business plans, website terms and connditions and many more things we have a merchant account at last!!!

This is mainly for our new Internet Telephony Service Provider called SureVoIP which is currently live with various customers but has no front facing sales and marketing site yet, only the admin and customer portal.

We'll keep you posted with a proper press release in due course.

Thanks,

Gavin.

OpenSIPS 1.6.0 - a newmajor release is out

AsteriskOpenSIPSOpen SourceSuretec
After almost 7 months from the last major release (1.5.0), OpenSIPS evolves with a new major release, 1.6.0.

Many thanks to all the people who got involved in this release (and in the overall OpenSIPS project) and contributed with code, with testing and debuging, with patches or reports, with support on the lists, help with packaging and documentation.
I will avoid listing names, not because they do not deserve it, but simply because it will impossible to list list everybody here and I do not what to be unfair with some of them (because I simply forgot a name or because of the limited space).

But nevertheless, I want to thanks you all for out great job and not in my behalf, but in the behalf of people who will find this piece of software a useful tool.

The full Changelog is available here:

Suretec VoIP platform coming soon - SureVoIP

AsteriskCatalystDojoJabber/XMPPLinuxOpenLDAPOpenSIPSOpen SourcePerlPostgreSQLSuretec A quick update:

SureVoIP a new startup ITSP will be launched by Suretec very soon. It is currently in development and being installed in a Scottish datacentre using various enterprise grade Open Source products. Keep an eye out for when it goes beta and will be available at http://www.surevoip.co.uk

[Unofficial] Sneak peak: OpenLDAP 2.4.17 almost out!

AsteriskOpenLDAPOpenSIPSOpen SourceSuretec There's been lot's of hard work gone into 2.4.17 and I say it every time, but this is the best release so far!

A huge thanks to the following significant contributors to this release:

Howard Chu (Symas Corp)
Hallvard Furuseth (University of Oslo)
Quanah Gibson-Mount (Yahoo! Inc)
Ralf Haferkamp (SUSE Linux)
Gavin Henry (Suretec Systems)
Pierangelo Masarati (Sys-Net)
Rein Tollevik (Basefarm AS)

It's been 3 months almost to the day since 2.4.16 so you'll see lot's of fixes and a new tool. It always amazes me that there are still bugs even though OpenLDAP is so stable, widely deployed and so fast! Well, software will always have bugs ;-)

The nice new tool is Slapschema: "Slapschema is used to check schema compliance of the contents of a slapd(8) database." See man slapschema (8)

For complete fixes etc. see the OpenLDAP CHANGES file.

Oh, and where are all my new docs? We've been so busy with existing and new clients that things have slipped, sorry. Lots of work with our partners Symas too and we're also prepping a new VoIP platform for Suretec Telecom called SureVoIP (which OpenLDAP plays a big part!).

More later and upgrade, upgrade, upgrade!!

AsteriskJabber/XMPPOpenLDAPOpenSIPSOpen SourceSuretec This has just appeared on voip-info.org via our Google Alerts and will answer
a lot of questions that appear on the Kamailio and OpenSIPS mailing lists:

http://www.voip-info.org/wiki/view/Realtime+Integration+Of+Asterisk+1.4+With+Kamailio+1.5.x

All that is left is to switch to LDAP[?] authentication using the OpenSIPS LDAP module and res_config_ldap Asterisk plugin ;-)

Cheers.
