Linux on tap in netbook, nettop

HP has upgraded its Linux-ready "Mini" netbooks, offering its new "HP Mini 110 with Mi" at a much lower $280 pricetag than the previous Mini 1000. Meanwhile, Shuttle switched from an Intel Atom to Via's 1.0GHz Nano U1700 processor for its latest, low-power Shuttle XS29F nettop.

Compared to the HP Mini 1000 with MIE introduced last October, HP's Mini 110 with Mi offers a larger, faster hard drive, a VGA port, and a third USB port, says HP. The Mini 110, which is also available in a Windows XP version, is closely based on the Mini 1000. The biggest difference is the price, which has been slashed from $380 to $280. The "Mi Edition" of the Mini 110 is pre-installed with HP's Ubuntu-based, media-centric Linux distro, called Mobile Internet (Mi).

  • Linux Foundation launches badge program to boost open source security
    The Linux Foundation has released the first round of CII Best Practices badges as part of a program designed to improve the quality and security of open-source software. Announced on Tuesday, the non-profit said the Core Infrastructure Initiative (CII), a project which brings tech firms, developers and stakeholders together to create best practice specifications and improve the security of critical open-source projects, has now entered a new stage with the issue of CII badges to a select number of open-source software.
  • Free Badge Program Signals What Open Source Projects Meet Criteria for Security, Quality and Stability
  • How to Conduct Internal Penetration Testing
    The best way to establish how vulnerable your network is to a hacker attack is to subject it to a penetration test carried out by outside experts. (You must get a qualified third party to help with penetration testing, of course, and eSecurity Planet recently published an article on finding the right penetration testing company.)
  • SSH for Fun and Profit
    In May last year, a new attack on the Diffie Hellman algorithm was released, called Logjam. At the time, I was working on a security team, so it was our responsiblity to check that none of our servers would be affected. We ran through our TLS config and decided it was safe, but also needed to check that our SSH config was too. That confused me – where in SSH is Diffie Hellman? In fact, come to think of it, how does SSH work at all? As a fun side project, I decided to answer that question by writing a very basic SSH client of my own.
