Welcome to the New LinuxJournal.com
You may have noticed something different about LinuxJournal.com today.
I am very pleased to share our newly redesigned site with you, and I'd like to tell you a little bit about some of the new features. I hope you'll take the time to register, if you have not already, so that you may take advantage of all of the new features we have added and will continue to add.
When you are logged into the new LinuxJournal.com you'll be able to communicate with other readers and with the Linux Journal editors and staff. Visit the participate page to search for other readers and editors, so you can make friends and share your experiences in the world of Linux and open source. Think of us as your virtual LUG!
Once you have established a profile, this will also be your "recipe book" to keep track of all your favorite articles and posts from around the site. You'll notice a new link at the bottom of each post that says "Mark as Favorite." Use this to store articles for easy reference.
I'll continue to add new features in the near future, and I look forward to sharing them as our online community grows.
Please feel free to leave comments here with your feedback.
P.S. Every week we'll randomly select a handful of registered members to receive free, cool stuff and this week we're giving away 5 copies of The Official Ubuntu Server Book by Benjamin Mako Hill and Linux Journal's own hack editor, Kyle Rankin (psst... he's the guy in the super-cool video goggles on the front page).
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
