OpenRheinRuhr - Ein Pott voll Software

5.11.-6.11.2016, Oberhausen. The OpenRheinRuhr is an opensource conference in the so called “Ruhrpott”, Germany. There are roughly 30 exhibiters but several parallel tracks of talks. You get a new coffee mug (In German a “Pott”) every year and a coffee flat rate. The exhibitor hall is a former industrial hall built from bricks. Very cool. Very cool? It is November, nevertheless there will be a BBQ in the evening.

This year NetKnights again is a sponsor of this event.


Using privacyIDEA 2.11 it is extremely easy to migrate your exsting, old OTP system to privacyIDEA. privacyIDEA is the Open Source two factor authentication system.


On March, 30th at 5:30 PM (CET) you will learn how to do this.

Watch this video on YouTube.

Cornelius Kölbel will give a talk about Open Source Multi-Factor-Authentication solution Lösung privacyIDEA at T-Dose in Eindhoven on November, 28th, 2015. T-Dose is an annual conference about Open Source software.

The talk has the slightly provoking title “No need for Gemalto – Do it yourself! Open Source two factor authentication with privacyIDEA“. Gemalto is one of the big, commercial player at the authentication market. But it is not necessary to rely on commerical, closed source vendors. Using privacyIDEA you get an open, transparent Open Source solution, which can be used in any scenario.

NetKnights provides enterprise level support for privacyIDEA. So there is no need…
