Last month I wrote about buying a shiny new digital camera, and figuring out what computing platform to use for digital editing and archiving. Much to my shame, I actually tried Windows first. That didn't work very well. Then I thought, well hey, Macs are way cool and this kind of work is just what Macs excel at.
Well, I still don't own a Mac, as lovely and tempting as they are. Linux is working out great for my needs. Here's a quick outline.
The Perfect Linux Firewall Part II -- IPCop & Copfilter

The next version of the Carrier Grade Linux specification is out. Now, it's up to the vendors to get registered and prove themselves compliant. The OSDL has opened up registration for newly-released Carrier Grade Linux 3.2 specification (CGL 3.2). The new CGL specification is an evolution of the version 3 specification that was originally announced just over a year ago.
The term IPS (Intrusion Prevention System) is tied closely to the term IDS (Intrusion Detection System). Bad things happen, and you need to be able to detect when a server has been broken in to, not solely focus on preventing intrusions. The problem is that many host intrusion detection systems focus on monitoring only one host. The enterprise IT world isn't generally interested in applications that don't scale, and this is precisely where Samhain shines.
A group of academics and major vendors last week kicked off an open source project designed to give applications easier access to identity systems and users more control over their personal information.

I used to think a simple format of a hard drive was enough to make data recovery impossible, but I was wrong. To ensure that details of your secret love affair, bank account passwords, and daily porn site visits cannot be recovered, use shred.
