In this paper I will try to explain the philosophy behind the Security Enhanced Linux (SE Linux). I will however try to explain the concept with an example but to keep the length readable I will restrain myself to go into much of implementation details for e.g. commands and similar stuff.
One of the nicest facilities of the modern shell is the built in "completion" support. These facilities allow you to complete commands and their arguments easily. Read on for a brief introduction to adding your own command completions.
I had always wanted to try out Solaris OS ever since Sun released its code under an open licence and renamed it as Open Solaris. But even though open solaris had its own website, downloading a binary image was an entirely different matter and was not an easy proposition. So when a few brilliant Indians at the Bangalore India Engineering Center of Sun Microsystems released a live CD called Belenix based on Open Solaris, I decided to give it a spin.
After only seven monthly issues -- from June 2005 to December 2005 -- the only Romanian Linux magazine -- MyLINUX (MyL in short) announced it will not appear any more!
An interesting question comes to mind when you use as many open source forensic and security tools as I do — if I ever go to court over this case, will my tools be considered valid?

2005 has been an exciting year on the Linux distribution front. For some of us, every year is an exciting year in Linux, but 2005 was undoubtedly a banner year for open source and Linux to be sure. We've seen a lot of technological progress as well as some philosophical, personnel, and directional changes. I think it's only fitting to look at some of Tuxmachines' Top Distro Picks of 2005.
The recent licensing changes affect a broad spectrum of users, including corporations, the open-source community, and even businesses using services that use Nessus. So what exactly does this mean for open source? Is it the end of the age of innocence? What options do interested parties have going forward?

In the fourth quarter, SCO pulled in $8.5m, which is a sharp drop from the $10.1m in revenue reported in the same quarter last year. "This decrease in revenue was primarily due to a decrease in Unix revenue as a result of continued competitive pressure on the company's Unix products and services," SCO said.
Even if you boot in single user mode it will ask root password for maintenance, and just imagine you do not have a backup of /etc/shadow file. How will you fix such problem in a production environment where time is critical factor? Relax here I will explain how to recover deleted /etc/shadow file in five easy steps.

Midway through the decade, new pricing and business models championed by relative upstarts such as Google Inc. and Salesforce.com Inc. are forcing established players to reinvent themselves.
