We rarely talk about goals and use cases FreeIPA, Samba, SSSD, MIT Kerberos and other related projects are trying to solve within the context of Fedora, RHEL, or CentOS. There is also an industry-wide effort to reduce use of insecure versions of various network protocols. While there is a good progress with protocols like TLS and common security policies, ease of use for desktop users directly clashes with these activities and we need to look into how both user experience and security could be improved. There is also a container story lurking around the corner that awaits to understand how 'traditional' tools from these projects can improve security of containerized environments.

The talk is going to provide an ecosystem-wide overview of the work being done by multiple teams to improve identity and authentication packaging infrastructure within Fedora projects, how individual components play together and what to expect in future.
