Freely Redistributable Software is Alive and Well
Finally, here I am on a late night flight on my way back to Seattle so I guess I am done with what I need to tell you about the conference. We intend to keep up on plans for the next Freely Redistributable Software Conference and will let you know about it in plenty of time so you can attend. If you want to rub elbows with some of the important people in the free software movement, get genuinely inspired by the high interest level in Linux, learn something new and maybe drink a real or virtual beer or two, it is the right conference to attend.
The following papers were presented at the Sunday conference. Note that a printed copy of the proceedings is available for $25 (postpaid in the U.S., add $10 for foreign airmail) from Free Software Foundation, 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111. They can be reached by phone at +1 617 542-5942 or fax at +1 617 542-2652.

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
