Focus: Cooking with Linux
Back in the early days of Linux Journal, we had a column by Matt Welsh called “Cooking with Linux” in which he told us about fun things to do with Linux, and when necessary, gave us scripts (recipes) for accomplishing them. With this month's focus, we revisit the spirit of those columns with articles from experts, who show fun things we can do with Linux. After all, being able to achieve our computing goals while having a good time is a winning combination for all of us.
So this month we feature articles about scripts (shell and Perl) for obtaining useful information from your computer, Netscape plug-ins, multilink PPP and clustering—all designed to help you have fun with Linux.
Two things I'd like to mention, in case you haven't already found them while browsing the Web. One is Linux Journal Interactive, our archive site for all articles printed in our magazine from issue number one through the current issue. This site can currently be accessed only by Linux Journal subscribers; you will need your subscription number from the label to log in. In addition to the articles, you can post comments about them to discussion groups. Also available is a search facility to find LJ articles on any subject of interest to you. LJI can be found at http://interactive.linuxjournal.com/.
Two, we have completely redesigned our web site at www.linuxjournal.com/. The new site came alive on June 25. If you haven't visited us lately, now is the time to take another look. I know you will like the new appearance and the information you find there. This is the location for the Table of Contents of each issue with links to all “Strictly On-Line” articles. Unlike LJI, the articles here are world readable. Accessible are product reviews, the Best of Technical Support column and at least one feature each month. Also on the site are articles by SSC staff members, including Linux Journal Sr. Editor, Doc Searls, as well as links to all the Linux resources you'll ever need.
Come on by, we'll be looking for you.

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
