Hi there 👋

I am a system/network administrator that specializes in Linux. System automation is my favorite topic. I also have a particular interest in security related topics like hardening, Apparmor confinement, containerization, VPNs, DNSSEC, etc.

I've started my Linux journey in ~2002 and I've been working with open source software from the comfort of my home since 2010.

🔭 I’m currently working on:

Most of my free time is shared between improving my home infrastructure and contributing to Ubuntu through Launchpad and more recently Debian through Salsa.

📫 How to reach me:

  • IRC: I go by the name sdeziel and I usually hang in #ubuntu-server on freenode
  • Email: you should be able to guess a valid username under the domain
  • My Linkedin profile
