The Fedora Security Lab (aka Fedora Security Spin) will be shipped for Fedora 26. This means that we will be in the 13th "seasons" with this Fedora Lab and should get ready for Fedora 27 and the future during Flock.

The Lab passed the 1 GB line a while back. This gives us some room to integrate new tools and toys. We collected a huge list of software which could be useful. Some of those tools are available in the Lab nowadays, others not. As the space limitation is no longer an issue (OK, let's stay below 2 GB for now) and so we would like to integrate some new tools. Especially those that help to detect and defeat current problems like ransom-ware, malware, disorder of your privacy, and leakage of information of all kind.

Also, till now we focused on Fedora. There are some people out there who would like to use the available tools on CentOS as well because they are useful and could make their jobs easier. The effort do bring packages which are shipped with the Fedora Security Lab to EPEL is on-going and Flock could boost it.

The workshop should also offer space to discuss the following topics:

- Security Menu
Is this useful outside of the live media? Could we create a solution which plays nice with other installation options? Can we automated this further?
- Installation options
There is the live media, the comps group, and Ansible playbooks to create a Fedora Security Lab-like environment. Is there an other easy ways missing? Can we improve the existing ways?
We need to improve the workflow for the testing. We were lucky in the last time that only minimal testing was needed to get the Lab out. Only depending on luck is the first step to fail, thus we need to do something.
- Positioning in the world
There are competitors out there which are well-known and widely used. Would it make sense to strengthen the marketing effort?

This session should be about DOING and not so much about talking. There will be enough possibilities for talking before or after the three hours.
