FreeBSD has long provided jails in which to run critical applications in a
self-contained and secure environment. With the power of jails however comes
an added level of management hassle, including configuring new jails,
creating firewall rules to protect jails, and ensuring that jails can be
easily upgraded and maintained.
The tutorial Managing Jails in the Real World focuses more on the nuts
and bolts of managing many jails in a production environment than on how to
bring up a single experimental jail (of course, we will quickly run over the
basics of jails). Discussions will include how jails should be configured
for maximum security and methods to automate the creation and management of
jails, including how to automate deployment of application-specific jails
(e.g., a jail-based web server).
