  • Testing Red Hat Enterprise Linux the Microsoft way

    Pairwise (a.k.a. all-pairs) testing is an effective test case generation technique that is based on the observation that most faults are caused by interactions of at most two factors! Pairwise-generated test suites cover all combinations of two therefore are much smaller than exhaustive ones yet still very effective in finding defects. This technique has been pioneered by Microsoft in testing their products. For an example please see their GitHub repo!

  • Onboarding New Contributors in the Fedora Project

    Fedora is a community with a lot of moving parts and has at least five different ways of thinking about new contributor onboarding. Unlike some single code-base communities where there is a focus around a repository or a bug tracker, Fedora is constantly working on lots of things and the linkages can be hard to see. Some of those activities are directly (in a creation sense) related to the amazing Linux distribution we produce.

How Red Hat's strategy helps CIOs take baby steps to the cloud

Filed under
Red Hat

Within 10-20 years, virtually all computing will reside on public clouds, AWS chief Andy Jassy declared in 2015. However, even if one agrees with this prediction, getting there will involve a heck of a lot of ugly reality between now and then. That "reality" involves a roiling cauldron of public, private, and hybrid cloud services, not to mention earth-bound, on-premises servers. In the midst of that infrastructural confusion, there is opportunity for someone to provide consistency at the app layer to which developers can write.

  • Single images and page sizes

    "The year of Linux on the desktop" is an old running joke. This has resulted in many "The year of X on the Y" spin off jokes. One of these that's close to my heart is "The year of the arm64 server". ARM has long dominated the embedded space and the next market they intend to capture is the server space. As some people will be more than happy to tell you, moving from the embedded space to the enterprise class server space has involved some growing pains (and the occasional meme). Most of the bickering^Wdiscussion comes from the fact that the embedded world has different requirements than the server world. Trying to support all requirements in a single tree often means making a choice for one versus the other.


    Fedora is a production system and it does need to be optimized. There's been fantastic work recently to support more single board computers like the Raspberry Pi in Fedora. Thanks to single image efforts, the same kernel can boot on both a Raspberry Pi and an enterprise class ARM server. Booting doesn't mean work well though. Single Board Computers can come with as little as 512MB of RAM. Enterprise servers have significantly more.

  • Factory 2, Sprint 14

    Hello all. Bi-weekly update from the Factory 2 team on our work here. We have three videos this sprint.

  • What's got a vast attack surface and runs on Linux? Windows Defender, of course
    Google Project Zero's Windows bug-hunter and fuzz-boffin Tavis Ormandy has given the world an insight into how he works so fast: he works on Linux, and with the release of a personal project on GitHub, others can too. Ormandy's project is to port Windows DLLs to Linux for his vuln tests (“So that's how he works so fast!” Penguinistas around the world are saying). Typically self-effacing, Ormandy made this simple announcement on Twitter (to a reception mixing admiration, humour, and horror):
  • Hacked in Translation – from Subtitles to Complete Takeover
    Check Point researchers revealed a new attack vector which threatens millions of users worldwide – attack by subtitles. By crafting malicious subtitle files, which are then downloaded by a victim’s media player, attackers can take complete control over any type of device via vulnerabilities found in many popular streaming platforms, including VLC, Kodi (XBMC), Popcorn-Time and We estimate there are approximately 200 million video players and streamers that currently run the vulnerable software, making this one of the most widespread, easily accessed and zero-resistance vulnerability reported in recent years.
