Usenix technical conference: Day 3 (Tuesday)
Great talk today by Eliot Lear from Cisco entitled "Network Complexity: How do I manage all of this?" Eliot discussed things like network discovery and the issues associated with finding devices into the high number range (10^8 devices for expanding enterprises for example), fault management, Workflow management, and commonalities of requirements for devices that can handle these problems. Identity Management, as expected was included in the discussion, and the problem of "consumers awash in keys".. great stuff. Nice job Eliot!
