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.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
