Lightboard Lessons: BIG-IP ASM Layered Policies

Posted in security, f5, big-ip, application security, asm, lightboard, devcentral, waf, policy by psilva on August 23rd, 2017

In this Lightboard Lesson, I light up some use cases for BIG-IP ASM Layered Policies available in BIG-IP v13.

With Parent and Child policies, you can:

  • Impose mandatory policy elements on multiple policies;
  • Create multiple policies with baseline protection settings; and
  • Rapidly push changes to multiple policies.

Lightboard Lessons: Attack Mitigation with F5 Silverline

Posted in security, f5, big-ip, application security, cloud, silva, video, lightboard, devcentral by psilva on July 19th, 2017

In this Lightboard Lesson, I describe how F5 Silverline Cloud-based Platform can help mitigate DDoS and other application attacks both on-prem and in the cloud with the Hybrid Signaling iApp. Learn how both on-premises and the cloud can work together to create a composite defense against attacks.

Lightboard Lessons: What is BIG-IP?

Posted in security, f5, big-ip, silva, video, application delivery, lightboard, devcentral by psilva on May 10th, 2017

In the early days of F5, BIG/IP was our original load balancer. Today, BIG-IP is a family of products covering software and hardware designed around application availability, access control, and security solutions.

In this Lightboard Lesson, Peter Silva lights up the various BIG-IP modules and what they do.

Lightboard Lessons: The BIG-IP Profiles

Posted in Uncategorized, f5, big-ip, application delivery, lightboard, devcentral by psilva on April 19th, 2017

BIG-IP can manage application-specific network traffic in a variety of ways, depending on the protocols and services being used. On BIG-IP, Profiles are a set of tools that you can use to intelligently control the behavior of that traffic.

In this Lightboard Lesson, I light up the BIG-IP Profiles. What they are, what they do and why you should care.

Lightboard Lessons: What is a Proxy?

Posted in security, f5, big-ip, silva, application delivery, lightboard, devcentral, proxy by psilva on March 15th, 2017

The term ‘Proxy’ is a contraction that comes from the middle English word procuracy, a legal term meaning to act on behalf of another.

In networking and web traffic, a proxy is a device or server that acts on behalf of other devices. It sits between two entities and performs a service. Proxies are hardware or software solutions that sit between the client and the server and do something to requests and sometimes responses.

In this Lightboard Lesson, I light up the various types of proxies.

Lightboard Lessons: IoT on BIG-IP

Posted in f5, big-ip, lightboard, devcentral, mqtt, iot, sensors by psilva on February 8th, 2017

As more organizations deploy IoT applications in their data centers and clouds, they're going to need their ADC to understand the unique protocols these devices use to communicate.

In this Lightboard Lesson, I light up how IoT protocol MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport) works on BIG-IP v13. iRules allow you to do Topic based load balancing along with sensor authentication. And if you missed it, here is the #LBL on What is MQTT?

Lightboard Lessons: What is MQTT?

Posted in f5, big-ip, lightboard, devcentral, infrastructure, mqtt, m2m, iot, sensors by psilva on January 11th, 2017

The mad dash to connect virtually every noun to the internet or The Internet of Things, is creating a massive M2M network for all the devices, systems, sensors and actuators to connect & communicate on the Internet.

With that, they need a communications protocol to understand each other. One of those is Message Queue Telemetry Transport (MQTT). MQTT is a “subscribe and publish” messaging protocol designed for lightweight machine-to-machine (or IoT) communications.

In this episode of Lightboard Lessons, I light up how MQTT works.

Lightboard Lessons: SSO to Legacy Web Applications

IT organizations have a simple goal: make it easy for workers to access all their work applications from any device. But that simple goal becomes complicated when new apps and old, legacy applications do not authenticate in the same way.

In this Lightboard Lesson, I draw out how VMware and F5 helps remove these complexities and enable productive, any-device app access. By enabling secure SSO to Kerberos constrained delegation (KCD) and header-based authentication apps, VMware Workspace ONE and F5 BIG-IP APM help workers securely access all the apps they need—mobile, cloud and legacy—on any device anywhere.
