Little-known APT utilities for Debian desktop users

Post date: July 30, 2006, 18:07 Category: Desktop Views: 2623 Comments
Tutorial quote: The Advanced Packaging Tool (APT) is a distinguishing feature of Debian-based systems. APT was the first major alternative in GNU/Linux to boast automatic dependency resolution. Most GNU/Linux users know it through the apt-get command, a utility that calls on the lower-level dpkg command. However, other APT-based utilities remain largely unknown to desktop users. Some of these utilities offer a range of functionality far beyond those of the basic tools.

Virtual Users/Domains With Postfix/Courier/MySQL/SquirrelMail (Mandriva 2009.0)

Post date: October 23, 2008, 12:10 Category: Installing Views: 3138 Comments
Tutorial quote: This document describes how to install a Postfix mail server that is based on virtual users and domains, i.e. users and domains that are in a MySQL database. I will also demonstrate the installation and configuration of Courier (Courier-POP3, Courier-IMAP), so that Courier can authenticate against the same MySQL database used by Postfix. The resulting Postfix server is capable of SMTP-AUTH and TLS and quota. Passwords are stored in encrypted form in the database. In addition to that, this tutorial covers the installation of Amavisd, SpamAssassin and ClamAV so that emails will be scanned for spam and viruses. I will also show how to install SquirrelMail as a webmail interface so that users can read and send emails and change their passwords.

Apache - Serving up the Web

Post date: April 11, 2006, 22:04 Category: Network Views: 7239 Comments
Tutorial quote: The Apache Web Server is installed as part of the OpenBSD base system. This guide will help you configure the web server: (Apache 1.3.12 is released with OpenBSD 2.7 and 1.3.9 with OpenBSD 2.6)

To see how configurable the Apache/OpenBSD combination is we also look at allowing administrators to remotely review the server's status, we setup the system so we allow users on our system to have their own personal web-space. Of course, for the security counscious you probably want to turn some of these things off after you get things up and running.

Perfect Paper Passwords - One Time Password System (OpenSuse)

Post date: April 20, 2009, 09:04 Category: Security Views: 3561 Comments
Tutorial quote: Almost without exception, today's Internet users prove their identity online using a fixed account name and password. In the past, this simple system provided sufficient security. But with the growing popularity of online banking and eCommerce, the value of stealing online identities has skyrocketed. And the increasing presence and "spyware" and "malware" on innocent users' computers means that users can be "watched" while logging onto their banking and other eCommerce sites. Once their logon credentials have been "captured" and stolen, Internet criminals can easily assume their identity.

Linux virtual server on Debian Sarge

Post date: November 29, 2005, 21:11 Category: System Views: 3324 Comments
Tutorial quote: Linux-VServer allows you to create virtual private servers and security contexts which operate like a normal Linux server, but allow many independent servers to be run simultaneously in one box at full speed. All services, such as ssh, mail, Web, and databases, can be started on such a VPS, without modification, just like on any real server. Each virtual server has its own user account database and root password and doesn't interfere with other virtual servers.

Automated distributed backups for laptops

Post date: February 14, 2006, 21:02 Category: Network Views: 2535 Comments
Tutorial quote: This document will describe the setup I made for automating the backup tasks for all laptops here in the house. My servers use the same backup server and infrastructure, but right now they don't have the checks and scripts because they are online 24/7 and my backup server is triggering the backup process. This is however not true at all for the laptops.

Laptops can be at different places, powered down, suspended, put to sleep etc. So I needed a different approach for them.
