Most Linux distros provide a wide variety of server applications, and many network-aware apps are enabled by default when you install the operating system. Before you put your new Linux machine online, there are a number of steps you should take to make your network secure. Use these tips every time you perform a fresh install; none of these steps will help to secure a machine that has already been compromised. "Before you install anything on your machine, check the Web site of the distro you plan to use and download any security patches or updates that have been released since the version you are going to install. As soon as the install process is finished apply the patches and updates you found...

In the beginning, there was Linus. He said, let there be Linux, and Linux was there. Actually he wrote some code. Then there was Miguel. He said, let there be GNOME. Actually he announced it on IRC. But then GNOME was there. As many years passed, both Linux and GNOME grew in size and complexity at niceness. And so it is that we have on our doorsteps, Linux 2.6, and GNOME 2.6. compelet story

It's been about three years since I woke up one morning and discovered my Web/mail server was rooted. Thinking back, I must have assumed that just running Linux was enough to keep me out of harm's way. These days I am not so cocky. I try to keep current with security patches for the apps I run. I don't run services I don't need or use. And there is a firewall between me and the wild. One thing I haven't made a part of my regular routine -- not yet, at least -- is checking for rootkits on a regular basis. That may be about to change, since I found a nifty little project called rootkit hunter. compelet story

We’ve all heard of web application level firewalls, and they’re certainly not something new, with several good commercial offerings available for quite some time. Most of these products will offer some kind of web based administration and reporting facilities to allow simple and straight forward management. On the open source end of the scale we have a project named ModSecurity. According to the Mod Security website (http://www.modsecurity.org), ModSecurity is an open source intrusion detection and prevention engine for web applications. Operating as an Apache Web server module, the purpose of ModSecurity is to increase web application security, protecting web applications from known and unknown attacks. compelet story
