Publisher of Linux Journal Announces New Release: OpenSSH Reference Card
The OpenSSH Reference card is the newest product in SSC Publications' Reference Card line, a series of handy booklets that provide computer professionals of all skill levels with uncluttered, task-specific information to help them work more efficiently.
"We've seen numerous companies and individuals become much more vigilant about Internet security," said Carlie Fairchild, SSC Publications' VP of Marketing. "To their credit, they've been implementing OpenSSH, a tool that performs inherently insecure functions like ftp, telnet, rlogin in a secure way. OpenSSH effectively eliminates connection hijacking and eavesdropping by encrypting all traffic, including passwords. The OpenSSH Reference card is the definitive guide for users of any background who want to get started with OpenSSH without the hassle of clutter. The product includes everything from basic commands to 'recipes' for common network security tasks."
The OpenSSH Reference card is available at specialty bookstores nationwide and on-line at the Linux Journal Store, http://store.linuxjournal.com/. Distributors include: Einstein's Books (phone: +1 301-816-0098, email@example.com) and Kudzu Enterprises (phone: +1 952-947-0822, firstname.lastname@example.org).

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.

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
