Linux Journal Contents #161, September 2007
Get out your drool bib before you pick up this issue of Linux Journal. We've got the dilly on a superb notebook/tablet PC for Linux, Nokia's latest and greatest hand-held, and a $4,000 Ultimate Linux Box packed with power at every level. Everything is top-notch and nothing is out of reach, but even if you are on more of a budget, we have a next-best-thing configuration for the Ultimate Linux Box, too.
As always, there's much more. We compare the performance of $7,000 servers, give you an overview of the Fedora Directory Server, and we'll introduce you to Stream Control Transport Protocol, a better protocol than TCP.

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
