Yazaki_Logo_April_2014

The modernization project will accelerate business and logistics processes, while lowering TCO

Media Release: 13 April 2015 – Bretten / – As the world’s largest producer of wiring harnesses and a worldwide market leader in the automotive industry, Yazaki required a backend system that could integrate its logistics partners (3PL), inter-company processes and more than 500 EDI providers.

Currently, Yazaki is consolidating nine locations of Yazaki Systems Technologies GmbH from BIS5 to the B2B Packaged Solution Automotive in the central BIS6 platform.

How does SEEBURGER Software deal with Leap Seconds in UTC Time?

What is a Leap Second?

UTC time / Years

Fig. 1 History of Leap Seconds (Source: IERS)

The time when the civil clock was defined by the position of the sun over Greenwich UK is long gone. Instead, atomic clocks (International Atomic Time – TAI) have become the tick-tock in the clock of civilization. However, there is still a need to synchronize the perceived time of day (Universal Time – UT1 or variations thereof) with the official time used in civil life and commerce (Universal Coordinated Time – UTC).

This coordination is the task of the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service (IERS) at the Observatoire de Paris. IERS can name specific dates (at end of June or December, but also end of March or September), to insert or remove single seconds (so called leap seconds) to make sure the predicted difference between UTC and UT1 stays below 0,9s. In January 2015, the IERS announced that the next leap second will be inserted on the night (UTC time zone) between June 30 and July 1st 2015.

Use Silent Setup to Automate your Infrastructure

Installing enterprise software can be an arduous task. Manually answering prompts with technical parameters in multiple environments (‘what was the IP address of the TEST database again?’) can be time consuming and error prone.

Today, we’ll look at how you can use the SEEBURGER BIS silent setup in order to minimize errors, shrink install times, and leverage your existing configuration management and server automation tools to install SEEBURGER BIS.

The ‘Silent Setup’ is an installation option that allows administrators to provide a response file to the BIS installer to specify common parameters like the database connection details and which packages to install.

M&A strategy for FSI with SEEBURGER

Stretching the IT Spend: Address Pain Points and gain Competitive Advantages with an FSI-specific Platform

data-security

Welcome to the first of our series of seven posts on choosing an FSI secure data transmission platform!

Over the last 5 years, banking infrastructure decision makers are increasingly being faced with new legislation and compliance regulations that change how IT systems are managed and monitored. IT budgets are expended managing these changes and although projects that create value for clients are required for business agility, IT is under pressure to do more with less funding.

The costs of running legacy environments, especially with an increased data exchange volume, further eat away money budgeted for value add IT projects. These changes mean IT infrastructure investors are requiring more out of their IT investments – with considerations for scalability and flexibility at the top of list of requirements.

At the same time, with the ability to switch banks vastly simplified, current and potential clients are informing themselves about the advantages and disadvantages of service providers. The speed at which banking can be integrated with a business can be a major factor in standing out – and ahead – of the competition. (more…)

SEEBURGER products and services are not vulnerable to the Shellshock Security Vulnerability

The GNU Bash (“Bourne Again Shell”, /bin/bash) is reported to have security vulnerabilities nicknamed “Shellshock” CVE-2014-6271.

The Shell is installed and used on nearly all Linux, Unix and MacOS X systems. There are various attack vectors known, where the weakness of the bash shell can be exploited. Among those are also unauthenticated attacks against CGI-Scripts (Web Server), DHCP Clients (System Service) or Login Shells.

Similar to the Heartbleed vulnerability, this is affecting all infrastructure services.

The weakness is actively exploited. It is therefore strongly recommended to update all affected systems with patches provided by the vendor.

There is the potential that the increased focus on bash will lead to further vulnerabilities being discovered in the coming days. We recommend you monitor your systems and the further development closely.

SEEBURGER has analyzed all SEEBURGER products and infrastructure services.

SEEBURGER is not aware of any possibility for an unauthenticated attacker to control environment variables.

For any questions about your SEEBURGER environment please contact us by opening an incident ticket. If you are not a customer and would like further information, please email us at: info@seeburger.com with the subject line, ‘Shellshock Security Vulnerability
