Reddit: IOMMU, 64 bit linux questions

Wednesday 6th of August 2014 04:29:46 PM

I have hardware that supports IOMMU, my kernel is compiled to fully support IOMMU however whether I enable or disable IOMMU in BIOS it seems to make no performance benefits to linux host nor virtualized 64bit guests.

My understanding of this feature is limited but from what I've read online how it works only on virtual hosts with a device that you allocate to it, and it has more benefit on 32bit guests. Is this true?

LXer: Securing SSH with two factor authentication using Google Authenticator

Wednesday 6th of August 2014 04:03:30 PM
Two-step verification (also known as Two-factor authentication, abbreviated to TFA) is a process involving two stages to verify the identity of an entity trying to access services in a computer or in a network. This is a special case of a multi-factor authentication which might involve only one of the three authentication factors (a knowledge factor, a possession factor, and an inheritance factor) for both steps. If each step involves a different authentication factor then the two-step verification is additionally two-factor authentication.
