Paranoid Penguin - The Future of Linux Security
So those are my thoughts on the future of Linux security. In the mean time, keep on using the techniques this column has focused on over the years: firewalls, virus-scanners, automatic-patch/update tools, VPNs and application-specific security controls such as chroot jails and audit trails.
With that, I bid you farewell, not only for this month but indefinitely. It's time for me to focus on other things for at least a little while and allow fresh voices take over the Paranoid Penguin. I'm continuing in my role as Security Editor and in that capacity will keep on doing my bit to help Linux Journal bring you outstanding security content. I also will try to contribute an article now and then myself, on an ad hoc basis. But the article you are reading now is my last as exclusive author of this column.
Thanks to all of you for five years of support, encouragement and edification—I've never made a mistake in this column that wasn't noticed and corrected by someone out there and always to my benefit. It's been a great five years, and I'm grateful to this terrific magazine's staff and readers alike for all you've done for me!
