A bar graph is a plot which visualizes data values using proportional-size bars. Bar charts are useful when you want to compare multiple items among different categories. As you can imagine, they are much more effective than a table of numerical data.

TuxMachines: Security Leftovers

Tuesday 3rd of May 2016 01:02:16 PM
  • Linux Foundation launches badge program to boost open source security

    The Linux Foundation has released the first round of CII Best Practices badges as part of a program designed to improve the quality and security of open-source software.

    Announced on Tuesday, the non-profit said the Core Infrastructure Initiative (CII), a project which brings tech firms, developers and stakeholders together to create best practice specifications and improve the security of critical open-source projects, has now entered a new stage with the issue of CII badges to a select number of open-source software.

  • Free Badge Program Signals What Open Source Projects Meet Criteria for Security, Quality and Stability
  • How to Conduct Internal Penetration Testing

    The best way to establish how vulnerable your network is to a hacker attack is to subject it to a penetration test carried out by outside experts. (You must get a qualified third party to help with penetration testing, of course, and eSecurity Planet recently published an article on finding the right penetration testing company.)

  • SSH for Fun and Profit

    In May last year, a new attack on the Diffie Hellman algorithm was released, called Logjam. At the time, I was working on a security team, so it was our responsiblity to check that none of our servers would be affected. We ran through our TLS config and decided it was safe, but also needed to check that our SSH config was too. That confused me – where in SSH is Diffie Hellman? In fact, come to think of it, how does SSH work at all? As a fun side project, I decided to answer that question by writing a very basic SSH client of my own.

  • Helsinki to enhance open democracy technologies through a hackathon

  • Dutch government organisations not ready for open data requests

    Dutch government organisations are generally unable to process requests under the new 'Law for re-use of government information' in a timely and correct manner. According to inventories made by the Open State Foundation and Open Archives, government at all levels took months to decide on the requests, had problems providing the information in an open and machine-readable format, and failed to forward requests that should be handled by other organisations.

  • Hungarian Post charging high costs to frustrate right to public information

    The issue was brought before Péterfalvi Attila, President of the National Authority for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, by Tóth Bertalan, Deputy Faction Leader for the Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP). Tóth argued that citizens are restricted in exercising their right of access to public information if an agency asks that much money for its data.

Reddit: What is the right technology to create a user interface (GUI) for Linux?

Tuesday 3rd of May 2016 11:42:46 AM

I want to write a program for Linux which should have a GUI. But I am not sure which technology I should learn. I heard about QT and GTK. But are they "modern" technologies? And which of them should be preferred?

TuxMachines: Contributing to open source software with Ian Varley of Salesforce

Tuesday 3rd of May 2016 10:35:37 AM

With open source, you're expanding the sphere of people who might potentially care a lot about your code. You find others who have similar problems, and who can leverage your work and maybe even extend it. The knowledge that you've helped someone avoid "rebuilding the wheel" is really gratifying, and it's amplified when those people actually start getting so involved that they give you contributions of code or ideas. The project picks up steam, and you might even get unforeseen help tackling those issues you didn't have bandwidth to tackle yourself. Really, it's the gift that keeps on giving.

Ubuntu bq Aquaris M10 Review Part 2: Software

In part one of our rather lengthy review, we took a look at the bq Aquaris M10 Ubuntu tablet's hardware. Suffice it to say, it perfectly played the role of a mid-range tablet. While the device had a few ups, like its lightweight design, bright display, and substantial battery, it would have been easily passed for a mediocre slab if not for the software running on it. In this round, we take a deeper look into what makes this tablet truly one of a kind, and almost literally too. This time, we take a dive into the alien world of Ubuntu Touch. Read more
