Host Identity Protocol for Linux
HIPL is open-source software for Linux. We are actively improving the software according to feedback from user mailing lists (www.freelists.org/list/hipl-users). We welcome all Linux enthusiasts to the HIPL community, and we are looking for more users and developers.
Host Identity Protocol brings communications privacy and mobility support for existing applications by introducing a new cryptographic namespace. It also allows you to set up servers behind NATs easily. In this article, we discussed how HIP works and how you can install it on your Linux box. We have shown how you can use HIP with Firefox and how to stream video with VLC successfully during network IP address change.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
