I'm Alex. I've been using Fedora on-and-off since about Fedora 14 and have really
enjoyed the ride so far.
Day-to-day I work heavily with SRE tasks, security tooling, automation in Ansible, and
just generally spend a lot of time in the Red Hat ecosystem - mainly with RHEL, but more
recently with Rocky and CentOS Stream. I'm a big fan of Fedora Workstation and of
Fedora Silverblue in particular. I like the community focus that Fedora has, while still
being on the cutting edge of all of the latest features and tech.
One specific thing I've been working on recently is improving the some of the coverage
for the CIS security benchmarks upstream in the ComplianceAsCode project. In RHEL, these
security hardening benchmarks can be toggled to be applied at install time using
Anaconda/Kickstart, allowing users to deploy a security hardened system out of the box.
One project in particular that I'd like to work on would be to bring this to Fedora.
All of the security content is already built, and the relevant Anaconda addon package
actually seems to already exist. I just don't think it's actually enabled. So I
think it's a case of patching Anaconda to unlock functionality that's mostly
already there, which doesn't seem too unachievable. If anyone knows who might be best
to speak to first about this within the project, please do let me know. Otherwise I'm
sure I'll figure it out!
Great to be a part of the community, and nice to meet you all!
