Stop The Presses
Linux Journal is no longer the only magazine which covers of Linux. In February, Byte ran a cover story entitled Linux Matters, which explained that Linux isn't just inexpensive, it's also worth using. Infoworld has regularly given Linux reasonable coverage; In the February 19th issue, Nicholas Petreley's reaction “mimicked the attitude of my 2-year-old daughter at a toy store: `gimme have it.”' Linux has been regularly mentioned in Dr. Dobb's and Unix Review for over a year. Of course, we still think that Linux Journal is the best place to get your Linux information fix.
As we announced last month, Linus is preparing to release a new stable version of Linux, provisionally called Linux 2.0. More features that will be interesting to our readers include true NFS caching, made possible by the new “page cache” which debuted in the 1.3.51 kernel, SMP on Pentium Pros, VFAT filesystem (Windows 95 “long filename”) support, APM (Advanced Power Management, normally used on laptops) capabilities, and disk quotas.

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
