Last week we had an bird's-eye of the current state of wireless security protocols, and a quick peek at using a RADIUS server for authentication, authorization, and accounting.

The network has become the platform

  • Computer World; By Jeremy Kirk (Posted by tadelste on Oct 18, 2005 9:30 PM EDT)

The open-source community is in the midst of a change, with the network increasingly becoming its own platform built on open-source software, said Tim O'Reilly of O'Reilly Media Inc. on Tuesday.

"They deliver their software as a service," O'Reilly said.

The open source software (OSS) initiative has already created a highly productive, globally supported alternative software platform. The choice of free applications for Linux is growing daily.
