Apache Talking IPv6
IPv6 is becoming a reality. For the next few years, we need to be able to support both IPv4 and IPv6 on our application servers before the complete transition to IPv6 occurs. The developers of Apache are aware of this, and they have already built in support for IPv6 in the Apache code. Previously, the support for IPv6 was in the form of a downloadable patch (from the Kame Project, for instance) that you would apply to the source tree.
As the benchmarking results suggest, serving documents over IPv6 is slightly slower (in terms of requests/second) than serving them over IPv4; however, this is understandable because the IPv6 support is still in its early stages. As the development advances, Apache is expected to reach and exceed the level of performance it achieved with IPv4 to remain the preferred web server in the world.

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
