UniForum '96, now billed as a Unix and Open Systems show, attracted about 20,000 attendees in San Francisco in February. It included 90 tutorials, seminars, and keynotes from Lew Platt, of Hewlett-Packard, and Scott McNealy of Sun MicroSystems.
UniForum was founded in 1981 to advance the use and standardization of Unix and open systems.
Besides offering a Unix-focused education forum, UniForum provided an opportunity for companies to exhibit their products. One section of the exhibition floor was labelled “Linux Area” and included the booths of Linux International, WorkGroup Solutions, SSC, and Enhanced Software Technologies. Other vendors with Linux products, such as Caldera and Comtrol, were not far away.

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
