Linux and The Dream of Using Free Software Everywhere

26 Jun , 2013  

This is a fine evening of June 26 and I’ve been cruising around the web while listening some old sets from 2010 Electric Daisy Carnival. ┬áThis is a very interesting evening actually, I’ve stumbled upon a quote from Stan Lee and a blog post about a recent riot that happened recently in connection to my country’s football. These things seems to be connected all the way to the root of many problems in here (I might write about them as well, who knows). But those are not the things I’m going to write about this time, this evening I also decided to check out the recent release of DistroWatch’s weekly issue.

SSH Security Improvement

24 Jun , 2013  

Secure Shell (SSH) is a very handy network protocol which a network/system administrator might use all the time. SSH provides us with the capabilities of data communication, remote login and remote command execution. As a network/system administrator we might be faced with the responsibilities of managing a large amount of server computers. Imagine the pains we would suffer if we have to keep moving around and connecting monitor and keyboard (if we have more computers than monitors) from one computer to another every time we have to manage them. To make our life easier, we can use the SSH protocol with the concept of client server between computers connected on the same network.
