At the Forge - Testing Rails Applications with Shoulda
The home page for Shoulda is thoughtbot.com/projects/shoulda. The documentation here is a good starting point, but you probably will need to play with it a bit to get the hang of things. Even the small problem I described above, in testing the minimum and maximum ages for a person, showed that you still might need to poke through the documentation to understand things fully.
A PDF cheat sheet for Shoulda is at kylebanker.com/assets/content/2008/shoulda_cheat_sheet.pdf, and the popular cheat sheet program for Ruby programmers also has an entry: cheat.errtheblog.com/s/shoulda.
The following are a few interesting blog posts about Shoulda that also can provide some useful ideas: pragdave.blogs.pragprog.com/pragdave/2008/04/shoulda-used-th.html, giantrobots.thoughtbot.com/2009/2/3/speculating-with-shoulda and www.alexjsharp.com/2008/10/15/shoulda-painless-unit-testing.

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
