SSC Announces New Online Linux Publication: WorldWatch
WorldWatch offers readers a comprehensive, daily digest of articles from publications around the world about topics surrounding Linux and Open Source software. These topics are generally non-technical and offer big-picture perspectives regarding the implementation of the Linux operating system around the world and the resulting societal impacts.
Each WorldWatch topic consists of a several viewpoints combined with expert commentary, giving readers the opportunity to explore the nuances of developing trends and ideas. Furthermore, each topic contains a sophisticated feedback system, which allows the readership to interact and elaborate on particular issues.
"It is a fact that Linux is changing the world for the better," commented Willy Smith, editor in chief of WorldWatch, "and WorldWatch is the place to get the macro-view on this exciting development. For example, what does it mean if a country adopts Linux as its official operating system, or if Sony Corporation decides to contribute to Linux? At WorldWatch we're interested in how these phenomena contribute to real change for real people."
"Likewise," added Smith, "Linux is a truly global phenomenon with a diversity of developments occurring in different societies. Therefore we're eager to transcend national and cultural borders in our articles, viewpoints and analyses." Although this will be primarily an English language site, links to articles from every corner of the world and in non-English languages will be provided whenever possible. Machine translation links will also be present where feasible.
"WorldWatch also presents companies with a new and unique advertising opportunity," said Carlie Fairchild, VP of Marketing & Sales. "Due to the non-technical and broad aspects of WorldWatch, its readership is a unique blend of both applied IT professionals and managers. In addition, WorldWatch's global reach is unprecedented. The result is perhaps the most comprehensive Linux-related audience of any publication worldwide."
WorldWatch is available online at http://WorldWatch.LinuxGazette.com.

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
