Up Next: Glenn Block talks about Asynchronous Programming


Please join us tonight at 9:30 PM EDT at live.powerscripting.net when we are talking with Glenn Block about some new asynchronous programming features in .NET, and tips and caveats about how you can work with them in PowerShell.

You can read more about async/await at MSDN.

Glenn blogs at codebetter.com, and can be often be seen at developer events near you!podcast-logo

Help wanted–we need your show ideas!


As always, we are looking for ideas for interesting things to talk about on the show. If you have anything PowerShell-related that you want to know more about, then now’s your chance! Send us your ideas, and we will either find *the* expert on that topic, or Jonathan and Hal will take it on themselves! The point here is that we do the show for you guys and gals, and we want to hear from you. So, please use the twitters, the facebooks, the blog comments, or just plain email and help to shape the future of the podcast.

Some shows we have in the hopper include:

  • SQL Saturday, PASS, and why SQL admins need PowerShell
  • How to work with .net async from PowerShell
  • What’s new with Azure & PowerShell

Anything beyond that is all you!podcast-logo

Tonight on the podcast: Matt Johnson and Ben Ten on the PoshSec project


Tonight should be a great show! Please join us at live.powerscripting.net as we talk to Matt Johnson and Ben Ten about the PoshSec project! Here is more info in their own words:

PoshSec was created by Matt Johnson and Will Steele. The project was created because they felt there was a lack of security related modules in the PowerShell ecosystem. Matt and Will worked tirelessly on the project until Will’s passing. Wanting to keep this going in memory of Will, Matt pressed on a few months later.

Matt decided to enlist a few brilliant people, including Wolfgang Goerlich, Rich Cassara and Nick Jacob, to produce the first release of PoshSec. Soon after their first release, Ben Ten contacted Matt to add the PoshSec Framework into the project. Since joining the team, along with some additional talent acquisitions, PoshSec shipped version 1.0 at BSidesChicago in 2014.

Matt Johnson

Matt Johnson is a cyber-security subject matter expert for a Midwest-based energy company. He has over 10 years of experience with the Microsoft ecosystem and information security. He is the creator of PoshSec, the founder of the Michigan PowerShell user group and co-host on the Leveled Up Infosec podcast. You can find more information on what Matt is working on at www.mwjcomputing.com or follow him on Twitter (@mwjcomputing).

Ben Ten

Ben Ten is the Vice President of Information Systems and Security Officer for a company in Illinois. He has over 13 years of experience doing Application & Web Development; Security Implementation, Consulting, & Training; Federal Regulation and Compliance oversight in relation to Information Technology (HIPAA, HITECH, PCI); and managing a team of developers and IT professionals. He is the creator of the PoshSec Framework. He is also involved with BSides Chicago, the BSides Joint Task Force Tri-City CTF, and working with the PoshSec development team.

Would you buy a PowerScripting Podcast T-Shirt?


We’ve long thought about offering a PowerScripting Podcast t-shirt for sale. It’s time that we did something about that! But because this is a hobby, not a business, we really can’t afford to purchase bulk inventory and all that. Luckily, there are plenty of web-based options these days. If we went the standard cafepress type route, where they handle manufacturing and fulfillment, and you buy one shirt at time, then it will be expensive. $25 plus shipping, that sort of thing. HOWEVER, if we buy in bulk and do the fulfillment ourselves, that can be cut way down–less than half, actually. But that requires a capital investment up front of $750-1000.

Our question(s) to you, and a call for feedback is: if we offered shirts for $12-15 each, would you buy one (or more)? This is just to gauge the relative level of interest. If there’s enough feedback, then we will start a crowdfunding campaign where you put in a payment method, but it won’t be charged unless we get the required number of orders to actually get the bulk pricing we need for the whole thing to make sense. Almost no risk for anyone, yay Internet!

Do please leave comments here on the blog, or reply to @powerscripting, or comment on our facebook page and let us know!

And…here’s a mockup! Design is by no means final, but we sure love Don’s excellent logo work!

So to wrap up–the questions, which now number onetwothree, are:

  • Interested? Would you buy a shirt at $12-15? (If you’d buy more than a few, how many?)
  • PowerShell logo required? Do you really want the PowerShell logo on the shirt? We do have permission to use the logo, just wondering if and how to make space for it on the front or back (or the sleeve). This will have some impact to the shirt cost, but not a lot.
  • White ok? Would you buy white, or is another color a big deal? We would need to do a small amount of work to make the logo work well with other colors, but it works great as-is on white.

Notes

  • JEA premises
    • reduce the # of admin privs users
    • credentials persist and can be used to spider
    • limit actions
  • New toolkit based on powershell remoting
  • JEA endpoint = powershell configuration
    • provisions user w/set of toolkits (and only those)
    • runs as an account with local admin privs
    • JEA endpoint account has only local admin privs
  • “security that isn’t deployed, isn’t security”
  • How can we take advanced features and reduce to a simple set of features to deploy
  • Implemented as DSC
  • PowerShell v5 is required
    • Why: any time that WinRM changes are made, WinRM service must be restarted, and v4 has a bug in WinRM
  • Very similar to sudo from *nix, but more fine-grained, e.g. limit which process can be stopped by stop-process
  • Build CSV as input to a toolkit spec
    • module
    • command(s)
    • parameters
  • Logging is sent to ETW/PowerShell, and is broken down by module
  • Will ship as a set of toolkits
  • OMI runs on 41 Linux distros
  • “CTP next month” (meaning July?)
  • “yes, moving back towards developers and new .net features”

Chatroom Highlights:

[21:37:02] <sepeck> ## when is the next one [MVA]?

[21:38:07] <AlexTeachesTech> ## Will there be a DSC video series on MVA?

[21:45:05] <Ver_Anderson> ## What kind f pats do yu wear

[21:45:15] <psCookieMonster> just to get it out of the way – ## are classes coming to PS5, anything to share on the implementation?  Is a new PowerShell MVA on the way, what might be covered?  when will we get the PowerShell source code? : )  Maybe too early for the last one!

[21:45:18] <jcotton> ## is JEA based on PowerShell remoting?

[21:48:48] <BartekB> ## DSC for Linux is based on OMI. Can we expect easy OMI-to-DSC implementations? Like DSC for Cisco/ Arista/ Huawei?

[21:49:05] <MattHitchcock> ## Whats the approach for using JEA on Domain Controllers? I guess you’d be forced to use a Domain Account for RunAs

[21:51:17] <Zackbmiller> ## Can JEA be ran on all version of powershell?

[21:58:43] <BartekB> ## Why New-Object in JEA?

[21:59:26] <BartekB> halr9000: When I was watching Jeffrey presentation: he defined (exposed) new-object in endpoint.

[21:59:11] <PowerSchill> ## How do you handle the “chain of evidence” for the actions performed?

[22:03:18] <DonJ-MVP> ##### Payette “outed” classes in v5 on Twitter yesterday. Inquiring minds wanna confirmation.

[22:13:54] <psCookieMonster> ## will the slides from the Monad Manifesto update be made available?  Might be helpful for those that missed it

[22:18:24] <Darkoperator> wish OMI was packaged and available in most distros

[22:20:17] <randal_hicks> ## @jsnover With a project as huge as Powershell, how have you gone about managing it (other than check marks off the Monad Manifesto)?

[22:22:11] <randal_hicks> ## @jsnover How do you ‘unplug’ — to clear your head — before diving back into the work?

[22:42:26] <psCookieMonster> ## Jeffrey tweeted about DSC being fast tracked for the common engineering criteria a while back… in what sense?  standard for configuration management? Something else?

[22:44:23] <_____> “How I learned to stop clicking and love the shell” Jeffrey Snover

[22:47:50] <BartekB> ## why not xResources on GitHub, so that others can jump on it and help? We had some fixes to cResources and than almost the same on xResource.

Chatroom Highlights:

<ScriptingWife> For anyone new to the chatroom, please place ## in front of questions for the guests so Jon and Jason can easily see them, THX

<randal_hicks> ## would you say Primal Script userbase were among the core early adopters of Powershell?

<MattHitchcock> ## Are SAPIEN concerned that if Microsoft were to start building more support into Visual Studio for PowerShell (and many of us believe they should), it might start removing a lot of the requirements people have for tools such as PowerShell Studio?

<MattHitchcock> ## Good point raised about WPF, was there a reason PowerShell Studio uses WinForms and not WPF as well? (or it might now and I may have missed that?)

<marc_carter> ## Is it too late in CY2014 for User Groups to get Dr. Rios scheduled for visit?  We had him scheduled earlier but bad weather didn’t allow it to happen.

<marc_carter> ## I’ve been reading up on and would like to set up an internal PowerShellGet repository.  Does sapien have products to help facilitate this or similar?

<Dave_Wyatt> ## Why are the price points of the Sapien tools so high?  PrimalScript and PowerShell Studio are nearly $400 apiece, more expensive than professional versions of Office, Windows and Visual Studio.  Is this targeted at corporate customers, or individuals?

<marc_carter> ## that concept would work well in our environmet.  only 2-3 scripters and 10-14 sys admins who don’t want to climb the learning curve.  ability to easily create apps for internal modules would be nice
