Consistent Keyboard Configuration
The techniques for configuring and programming the keyboard for the Linux kernel, the X Window System, xterm, bash, less, Netscape, minicom and Emacs have been presented. Table 1. Configuration Files and Commands summarizes the configuration files and commands.
After following these instructions, the keyboard should be configured to act more like the keyboard the typical user is accustomed to. The editing keys will perform as labeled. The Caps Lock and left CTRL keys will be switched. Various other keys will perform useful functions. Furthermore, the basic techniques discussed here can be applied to other computer programs which permit configuration of the keyboard.

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
