Jacksonville Linux Users Group

Jacksonville Linux Users' Group (JaxLUG)

The Jacksonville Linux Users' Group or JaxLUG is a diverse assembly of Linux users (beginners, casual desktop users, system administrators, developers, and IT professionals) that have a passion for supporting Linux and Free Open Source Software (FOSS) and live in or around Jacksonville, Florida metropolitan area. The JaxLUG, originally started by Daniel Stringfield in 1996, is led by Officers, who are elected annually.

To get to know us and become a member of the JaxLUG, please join our Mailing List and attend our Monthly Meetings.


We have an IRC channel #jaxlug @ for real time access to JaxLUG members.

We also have a JaxLUG Discord Server

JaxLUG Meetings

The JaxLUG meets every 3rd Wednesday of the month. The meeting begins with social intermingling at 6:30PM(postponed until 'rona restrictions end) and presentations start at 7:00 PM. JaxLUG meeting presenters and topics vary, for more information take a look at our Past Meeting History. JaxLUG meetings usually end with several members traveling to a local restaurant for a LUSH (Linux Users Social Hour) (again after 'rona is done).

Topic: How to block zerodays and root pwnage with WhiteBeam
Synopsis: A year ago I gave a presentation to JaxLUG on some defensive software I created which used the previous state of the art in offensive security (LD_PRELOAD rootkits). In the process of creating it, I found a vulnerability in it -- and every other EDR/EPP/HIPS/HIDS I tested -- that required a ground up rewrite of theirs/our software. Which is what I did for a year, and in the process created a brand new powerful Linux userspace hooking framework. We'll login to a server with some Linux security software built on it running and test it out live, then we'll take a look under the hood to show how it works, discuss what support currently exists and what's coming, and even watch real attacks against it with some honeypots I set up to give attackers root and record new sessions.
