Linux Expo at Union Bank of Switzerland
The machines and materials were on display without anyone from the workgroup watching or being there, other than during lunch time or coffee breaks. The whole idea was to have a display which invited people to sit down and explore the Linux systems.
Walking by the area at different times during the day (or for some of us—nights or evenings), there were always people playing with the Linux machines. Taking into account that most of the material (SCC flyers, etc.) put on display had to be renewed every week, we felt people were quite interested in what Linux had to offer.
Most of our time was spent getting the information about Linux and its history from the Net, preparing the demonstration machines, making the presentation panels and setting up the WWW cache. Once everything was in place, we only had to update the mirror material and occasionally reboot the machines to insure proper operation.
Martin Sjolin moved to Zurich (Switzerland) in July 1995, where he works at UBS dealing with System Management issues for Solaris machines. He has recently begun to explore NT 4.0. In his spare time he enjoys telemark skiing, cooking, running, windsurfing, reading and, of course, hacking his Linux systems. He can be reached via e-mail at email@example.com.

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
