Linux Journal Contents #182, June 2009
What comes only once a year and you get a present? No, it's not your birthday, it's the Linux Journal Readers' Choice Awards. Check them out and see if your favorites won. And if the Readers' Choices don't give you enough to choose from see our Cooking With Linux column (back this month after a one month hiatus) for an overview of a host of other open source apps. And the goodness doesn't stop there, we also have articles on Dojo's grid widget, on SNMP and Nagios, on building your own cluster, on adding HTML validation to your test suite, and on a spate of other topics to soothe your open source gland.

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.

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
