Home Entertainment Linux MP3 Player
The technology to do almost anything with the music is already available. In my opinion, without Linux and open-source software, the task of building such a remote-directed MP3 player would be much more difficult. Since my Linux server is up 24/7, it makes sense to use it any time I want to listen to music as well. Although the system I dedicated for it is a rather modest one (Cyrix 6x86 running at 166MHz), the MP3 player is using around 40% of the CPU time when playing, and there are no audible interruptions even when concurrently serving web pages. In addition to compressing all my CD collections and storing them on my Linux server as MP3 files, I also digitized my old tapes and, after some processing of the sound in order to improve it, stored them in the same music hierarchy tree. Finally, I could remove all the CDs and tapes from my living room and store them away for good. Now, every musical piece is quickly accessible by a touch of a remote-controller button.

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
