HowTos

Are you using SSH in the best way possible? Have you configured it to be as limited and secure as possible? The goal of this document is to kick in the new year with some best practices for SSH: why you should use them, how to set them up, and how to verify that they are in place. All of the examples below assume that you are using EnGarde Secure Linux but any modern Linux distribution will do just fine since, as far as I know, everybody ships OpenSSH.

One of the most annoying things that might happen is that you will need to use a different set of keyboard and mouse for each computer with the resulting waste of space on your table.

Kernel Madness: Basic Kernel Knowledge

Filed under
HowTos

FOSSline: For a fair number of people not accustomed to the operating system concept of a kernel, installing a Linux, BSD, or Hurd based distributions typically involves crossing your fingers and hoping that the installer can detect all of your hardware properly. I want to give an overview of what a kernel is.
