Trusted operating systems have been used for some time to lock down the most sensitive of information in the most sensitive of organizations. Several vendors, including Red Hat, Sun Microsystems and Novell, are responding by adding and/or improving trusted elements in their operating system offerings. eWEEK Labs has put the application lockdown options from Sun, Red Hat and Novell through their paces.
Linux-only workstations are far more secure than Windows PCs when comes to trojan and viruses coming by e-mail. Therefore, many Linux users either don't feel the need to use an antivirus under Linux. The last weekend I decided to try both Linux Desktop Anti-Virii.
SUSE Security has announced that SUSE Linux 9.1 (Personal and Professional edition) will be discontinued soon. Having provided security-relevant fixes for more than two years, vulnerabilities found in SUSE Linux 9.1 after June 15, 2006 will not be fixed.
Ever since the announcement of the PlayStation 3's November release date, the Internet has been abuzz with discussion over the promise of Ken Kutaragi's brief mention of Linux.
InQub Ltd offers personal remote KDE desktops on Kubuntu using NoMachine's NX technology for bandwidth savings and connection encryption for a small monthly charge.
Ever have one of those days when you can't stand end users? I know I have.
There are several expectations end users have for people creating software, or even Linux distros. They want it to work on their hardware, they want it to be stable, and they want it right now. But, at the same time, new releases shouldn't come too often, or it messes up the feng shui of their systems.
SUSE Linux 10.1 DVD ISOs are now available for download, as well as LiveDVD version. At this moment it can be downloaded via torrents only. openSUSE.org website still states 18th of May as the date of availability of downloadable DVD version, so expect FTP servers to open around in next 24-48 hours.
Bridging is the process of transparently connecting two networks segments together, so that packets can pass between the two as if they were a single logical network. Bridging is performed on the data link layer; hence it is independent of the network protocol being used - it doesn't matter if you use IP, Appletalk, Netware or any other protocol, as the bridge operates upon the raw ethernet packets.
Red Hat belongs to a first-generation open source development model and has refined this with nww product functionality delivered through Fedora Linux. JBoss, on the other hand, employs the lead developers in the open source projects at the base of its JBoss Enterprise Middleware System platform, and describes its approach as a second-generation open source business model. The combined entity provides a subscription model for first-class infrastructure software that also happens to be open source – whether that is a coincidence or not makes for an interesting debate.
Selinux can be confusing, but it's ordinary and default configuration is actually pretty simple. We'll examine it on Fedora Core 5.
Nautilus, the GNOME file manager, has a host of functionality for browsing and managing file systems, and for accessing remote servers including Windows shares, FTP servers, SSH servers, and WebDAV servers. On top of its built-in capabilities, you can extend the functionality of Nautilus by using Nautilus Scripts and Extensions. It's not too hard to do, and I'll show you how to get started.
Sun Microsystems kicked off its annual JavaOne conference with a trio of announcements concerning code availability: it's offering two new open source efforts and has officially released Java Platform 5, Enterprise Edition.
I've been a Linux diehard since my early days with Debian 1.3. I visited various RPM distributions, including Red Hat, Mandrake, and SUSE, flirted with Gentoo, and jumped on the Ubuntu bandwagon, but I could never find a single place to settle -- until I tried Arch Linux.
OpenOffice 2.0 -- the free, open source office suite -- has many features that are very similar to Microsoft Office. The trick is knowing how to use them. In this Q&A, expert Solveig Haugland explains how to use such OpenOffice features as the Draw tool, tabbed headers and footers.
The existence of legal systems without robust enforcement of copyright law, in countries where software development is a highly robust enterprise, is a serious threat to the free software model.
I started using Gmail as my primary mail application a little over a year ago. For the most part, it has been a pleasurable experience. However, to my knowledge there has not been a simple way to make Gmail your default mailer in GNOME. My latest shell script changes all this.
In this tutorial I will describe how to install and configure mod_deflate on an Apache2 web server. mod_deflate allows Apache2 to compress files and deliver them to clients (e.g. browsers) that can handle compressed content which most modern browsers do.
Back in late March, I detailed some of the ways that computers and the Internet had changed my life. I use Google News to check breaking news. I use online services such as Evite to organize face-to-face activities. I communicate with more people through email than by phone or in person. I buy gifts online.
