This workshop will cover the features, specifications and improvements that comprise the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux Version 8 (RHEL 8). RHEL 8 brings many improvements over previous releases, including:

  • Application streams, which enables the use of bleeding edge interpreters, compilers and libraries, while maintaining full backwards compatibility and stability of the system
  • The web console has been completely overhauled, and significant new features have been added
    • Session recording capability has been added to the web console
  • Image builder provides the easy creation of customized RHEL installation images
  • The system package management tool, YUM, has been enhanced with DNF technology, providing significant performance improvements
  • The System Purpose tool has been enhanced to automatically tune system performance for the usage of the system
  • There is a new update-crypto-policies tool, which applies cryptograhic polices system-wide
    • TLS, IPsec, DNSSEC, Kerberos, and SSH protocols are covered
  • The system Python interpreter has been updated to version 3.6
  • System firmware updating is now built into the GNOME Software tool, using fwupd
  • The system firewall has been upgraded to 'nftables' from 'iptables', which provides significantly better performance. The firewall manager, 'firewalld', remains the same

The RHEL 8 workshop is meant for anyone who has any exposure to Linux, whether you have used this distribution, or not. The event will begin with a short overview and then will move on to the lab.
