  • Open source: Docker’s secret sauce

    As the CEO of Docker, Ben Golub is at the forefront of the container revolution. In only two years, Docker has grown into a huge ecosystem that is starting to see widespread adoption across the enterprise market. The company has nearly quadrupled in size, and the statistics for applications are even more impressive.

  • Docker Makes the News, But the Open Container Project is the Big News

    Docker has announced the availability of its commercial solutions and the Docker Trusted Registry, which is software that lets organizations securely store their container images. The Docker Trusted Registry (DTR) is a registry for Docker container images that provides an on-premise option for storing and sharing Docker images. It offers "a highly-available registry server that provides LDAP and Active Directory integration with existing authentication systems," and "it also offers role-based access control (RBAC) and audit logs for authorization and compliance for authorization and compliance," according to the company.

    Many pre-university students have participated in Google Code-In (2014) again and for many of them it has been the first opportunity to make contributions to Free Software and Open Source projects. In opposite to Google Summer of Code the GCI program is organized as a worldwide contest where students at the age of 13-17 years take the challenge to complete as many software development tasks from their mentor organizations as possible. These software development tasks are provided by Open Source Projects that are approved as mentor organizations. And at the end of 2014 KDE has participated as a mentor organization for the fifth year.

  • Mageia 5: Solid, Strong, and Humming Along

  • 1 in 3 data center servers is a zombie

    A new study says that 30% of all physical servers in data centers are comatose, or are using energy but delivering no useful information. What's remarkable is that that percentage hasn't changed since 2008, when a separate study showed the same thing.

    The latest research was reported in a paper by Jonathan Koomey, a research fellow at Stanford University, who has done data center energy research for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and Jon Taylor, a partner at the Athensis Group, a consulting firm.

  • John Kiriakou: DOJ misguided amid U.S. hacking

    But the information the Chinese stole included my original application to the CIA — my Standard Form 86. That form included information on my family members, friends, neighbors and references. That means their information was probably compromised too.

Kolab's DLP is not just a back-up system that copies mails and other objects to disk for later restore, it actually creates a history of every groupware object in real-time that can later be examined and restored from. This will eventually lead to some very interesting business intelligent features.

  • The tools don't get you the job

    When I was in film school, I had been told by my professors that I needed a certain set of tools in order to get through my classes, but none of them told me how I was supposed to afford those tools. I figured that film was, after all, an infamously expensive medium, so that was just part of the curse. Sure we don't use celluloid any more, but if you want to make moving pictures, you have to buy fancy computers, and then you have to buy fancy software (often as expensive as the hardware you just bought).

    [...]

    And then on my way to work one day, I was riding the N line, reading a trade magazine, and I flipped to an article about how someone at Pixar or ILM was really enamoured by all of the Unix software that was being used there, and how you could render things without actually opening the application that had created the thing itself. It sounded amazing. You mean I can render stuff out and not have my computer crash because the image was too large to fit into RAM?

  • Google criticised for ‘opaque’ audio-listening binary in Debian’s Chromium browser

  • Qt Input Method – In Depth

    So an input method allows you for example to input Chinese, Japanese, Korean or Indian characters into a text input field of an application, even though there is only a Latin keyboard attached to the computer. That is done by analyzing the text, which is typed in as Latin, and e.g. opening a popup menu with a pre-selection of Chinese characters, which are associated with that Latin input. The user can now select one of these Chinese characters, which will then replace the Latin input in the text field.

  • MATE 1.10: Lighter and better

    Though MATE has added GTK3 support, it is still considered experimental. The team has noticed many serious regressions with each new GTK3 release. "So while MATE 1.10 built against GTK 3.16 currently works, we can not guarantee that will be the case when GTK 3.18 lands," said Winpress.

    That said, the team feels that the future release of GTK3 will be less demanding on MATE and the DE will continue to benefit from it.

    If you want to test GTK3 builds of MATE, there are two major distros offering it: Arch Linux and Fedora.

  • signify shortcomings

    Secret key files contain a 64-bit hash (truncated SHA512) of the secret key data which is used to verify the user’s password. You wouldn’t want to enter the wrong password and accidentally sign something with a bogus key. Unfortunately, this creates something of an oracle. If you steal somebody’s secret key, instead of guessing passwords which will be terribly slow because of the KDF, you can just guess keys and compute hashes until you get a match. The good news is that the key space is fairly large; you won’t have much luck guessing one. Harmless as this may be, it’s bothered me quite a bit because it’s plainly wrong. (The rationale for this decision was that encrypting the hash as well would require another iteration of the KDF.)

  • Improving LXC template security

    Fedora and CentOS templates will accept a root password from the user during the build and set a randomized password for the root user if a password isn’t specified.

The head and login node need an additional external network connection, while the compute nodes often use an additional high-throughput, low-latency connection between them, such as InfiniBand.

  • Who's Afraid of Systemd?

    Last year, the free software community was full of debates about systemd, the system manager that replaces init, the process that boots a Linux system. Now that systemd is uneventfully running the latest releases of major distributions like Debian, Fedora, and Ubuntu, you might imagine that opposition to it is melting away -- but you'd be wrong.

    Instead, casual references on social media show that the rumors are as common as ever. And while you don't hear much recently about Devuan, the anti-systemd fork of Debian, it is still trudging towards a release while making the same arguments as ever.

    The situation is not unique. Some free software circles have always seemed to require an enemy. For instance, in the first decade of the millennium, it was Mono, an adaptation for Linux of Microsoft's .Net. Hundreds of thousands of words were written denouncing Mono, yet today it attracts no attention, although it is still available in repositories.

    Perhaps, too, free software users are becoming conservative as they age, as indicated by the user revolts against GNOME and KDE. Yet no precedent comes close to the viciousness of attacks on systemd, or had so little foundation, either.

  • IRC on Hubs

    Still, since the idea for hubs is also to help new contributors get integrated more smoothly into the Fedora community, an effective way to message people did seem like it would be valuable. Since the team/project hubs will have the ability to include an embedded IRC channel, using IRC to send private messages seemed logical. But Fedora Hubs is not an IRC client – it will use IRC to send private messages between users and to enable the channel discussions, but every channel must be directly associated with a hub and the messaging interface will only support messages between Hubs users, not to anyone external. This is an active design choice that Mo and I made, based on the concept of keeping the hub as the central organizing principle of this app in order to help fend off scope creep.
