The Problem with Linux Kernel Documentation, and How We’re Fixing It

September 23, 2016 –
Mauro Carvalho Chehab

This article is the first in a series on changes to Linux Kernel documentation.
The Linux Kernel has one of the biggest communities in the open source world; the numbers are impressive: over 4,000 contributors per year, resulting in about 8 changes per hour. That results in 4,600 lines of code added every day and a major release every 9-10 weeks. With these impressive numbers, it’s impossible for a traditional printed book to follow the changes because by the time the book is finally written, reviewed and published, a lot of changes have already merged upstream. So, the best way to maintain updated documentation is to keep it close to the source code. This way, when some changes happen, the developer that wrote such changes can also update the corresponding documents. That works great in theory, but it is not as effective as

Linux Mint unveils ‘Mintbox Mini Pro’ — a diminutive desktop powered by AMD

If you are a fan of Linux-based desktop operating systems, you probably have done this before — buy a Windows PC and replace the pre-installed OS with your favorite distro. While this can be a fine practice, there are some problems with it. Of course, you may experience issues with drivers — especially Wi-Fi cards. Even worse, if you ever need support, the manufacturer might turn you away when it finds out you loaded Ubuntu, Fedora, or something else. A smart alternative is to buy a computer from a company that cares about Linux, such as System76. That company sells beautiful laptops… [Continue Reading]

Teleport – Modern SSH server for clusters and teams

README.md

Introduction

Gravitational Teleport is a modern SSH server for remotely accessing clusters of Linux servers via SSH or HTTPS. It is intended to be used instead of sshd. Teleport enables teams to easily adopt the best SSH practices like:

No need to distribute keys: Teleport uses certificate-based access with automatic expiration time.
Enforcement of 2nd factor authentication.
Cluster introspection: every Teleport node becomes a part of a cluster and is visible on the Web UI.
Record and replay SSH sessions for knowledge sharing and auditing purposes.
Collaboratively troubleshoot issues through session sharing.
Connect to clusters located behind firewalls without direct Internet access via SSH bastions.
Ability to integrate SSH credentials with your organization identities via OAuth (Google Apps, Github).
Teleport is built on top of the high-quality Golang SSH implementation and it is fully compatible with OpenSSH.

Installing and Running

Download the latest binary release,
unpack the .tar.gz and run sudo make install. This will copy Teleport

Meet Apache Spot, a new open-source project for cybersecurity

Hard on the heels of the discovery of the largest known data breach in history, Cloudera and Intel on Wednesday announced that they’ve donated a new open-source project to the Apache Software Foundation with a focus on using big data analytics and machine learning for cybersecurity.
Originally created by Intel and launched as the Open Network Insight (ONI) project in February, the effort is now called Apache Spot and has been accepted into the ASF Incubator.
“The idea is, let’s create a common data model that any application developer can take advantage of to bring new analytic capabilities to bear on cybersecurity problems,” Mike Olson, Cloudera co-founder and chief strategy officer, told an audience at the Strata+Hadoop World show in New York. “This is a big deal, and could have a huge impact around the world.”To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Introducing osquery for Windows

Today, we’re excited to announce the availability of an osquery developer kit for Windows! Security teams can now build customized osquery solutions for their Windows networks. In 2014, Facebook open sourced osquery, an SQL-powered detection tool for Linux and OS X that provides real-time insight into the state of corporate infrastructure. osquery allows you to write SQL-based queries that explore operating system data. With osquery, SQL tables represent abstract concepts such as running processes, loaded kernel modules, open network connections, browser plugins, hardware events or file hashes. Having timely, reliable visibility into operations running throughout your network is critical to quickly identify and investigate anomalies. For example, osquery allows our Facebook security team to fetch data about all browser extensions running on our corporate network. We then compare that information to threat intelligence data to quickly identify malicious extensions and remove them. This proactive technique, known as “threat hunting,” is

Spotify in Talks To Acquire SoundCloud

Janko Roettgers, writing for Variety: Spotify is in advanced talks to acquire rival music service SoundCloud, according to a report by the Financial Times. An announcement of the acquisition could be made soon, according to the Times. The acquisition would come just months after SoundCloud launched its own paid streaming service. A Spotify spokesperson declined to comment on the report when contacted by Variety; SoundCloud didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Spotify is the market leader in the growing paid streaming business, disclosing earlier this month that it now has more than 40 million paying subscribers. Its biggest competitor is Apple Music with 17 million paying subscribers.
