WireGuard for OpenBSD and OpenZFS 0.8.4 Released

Filed under
  • WireGuard for OpenBSD Kernel Patches Posted
    Hey folks,
    I'm delighted to announce that Matt has posted his OpenBSD kernel port
    to the OpenBSD mailing list:
    We've worked together closely on this for a long time, and I think
    this is a high quality implementation with a lot of the same security
    design principles as our Linux implementation. In a way, WireGuard's
    minimalism fits into and was inspired by OpenBSD's overall design
    philosophy. Looking forward to seeing how things pan out on the
    mailing list there; I'm optimistic.
    Users can try this out early by following the directions at:
  • WireGuard Ported To The OpenBSD Kernel - Looking For Upstream Inclusion

    With the WireGuard secure VPN tunnel having been upstreamed in the Linux 5.6 kernel, developer attention recently turned to OpenBSD and porting the very promising VPN technology to its kernel.

    Jason Donenfeld and Matt Dunwoodie announced WireGuard for the OpenBSD kernel and posted the patches this week for review.

  • OpenZFS 0.8.4 Released With Support Through Linux 5.6, Bug Fixes

    OpenZFS / ZFS On Linux 0.8.4 is out as the latest update to this leading open-source ZFS file-system base for Linux and FreeBSD and coming together as well for macOS.

    With OpenZFS 0.8.4, Linux kernel compatibility is from Linux 2.6.32 now up through Linux 5.6 as well as early work on Linux 5.7 support, compared to the prior release tapping out at 5.4.

Dangerous SHA-1 crypto function will die in SSH linking millions

  • Dangerous SHA-1 crypto function will die in SSH linking millions of computers

    Developers of two open source code libraries for Secure Shell—the protocol millions of computers use to create encrypted connections to each other—are retiring the SHA-1 hashing algorithm, four months after researchers piled a final nail in its coffin.

    The moves, announced in release notes and a code update for OpenSSH and libssh respectively, mean that SHA-1 will no longer be a means for digitally signing encryption keys that prevent the monitoring or manipulating of data passing between two computers connected by SSH—the common abbreviation for Secure Shell. (Wednesday's release notes concerning SHA-1 deprecation in OpenSSH repeated word for word what developers put in February release notes, but few people seemed to notice the planned change until now.)

AWOW AK41 Mini Desktop PC – Running Linux – Benchmarks – Week 2

This is a weekly blog chronicling my experiences of running the AWOW AK41 Mini Desktop PC on Linux. I was intending to kick off Week 2 of this series with testing multimedia on the AK41. But we’ve received requests to benchmark this Mini Desktop Computer. For this week’s blog, I’ve run a variety of benchmarking tests on the AWOW AK41 Mini PC together with three other systems to put the results into context. All the tests use the Phoronix Test Suite, unless otherwise stated. For ease of reference, I list system information about the 4 machines under the spotlight on each page. Together with the AWOW AK41, I’ve included another Mini PC from AWOW. This is the NYI3. I’ve also included a laptop from ASUS (UX305FA), and a Mini PC from Gigabyte (BXBT-1900). They are all low-power machines. Read more

Audiocasts/Shows: FOSS and Crafts, mintCast, LINUX Unplugged and Arch Rant

  • Christopher Allan Webber: Announcing FOSS and Crafts

    I wrote recently about departing Libre Lounge but as I said there, "This is probably not the end of me doing podcasting, but if I start something up again it'll be a bit different in its structure." Well! Morgan and I have co-launched a new podcast called FOSS and Crafts! As the title implies, it's going to be a fairly interdisciplinary podcast... the title says it all fairly nicely I think: "A podcast about free software, free culture, and making things together."
