One Port to Rule Them All!

Linux Journal - Mon, 07/06/2015 - 11:22

I was chatting with Fred Richards on IRC the other day (flrichar on freenode) about sneaking around hotel firewalls. Occasionally, hotels will block things like the SSH port, hoping people don't abuse their network. Although I can respect their rationale, blocking an SSH port for a Linux user is like taking a mouse away from a Windows user! more>>

Privacy Is Personal

Linux Journal - Thu, 07/02/2015 - 09:00

Try to nail two boards together with your bare hands.

Can't be done. You need a hammer. But the power is not the hammer's. It's yours, because the hammer is your tool. As a tool, it becomes part of you. That's what tools do: they enlarge your capacity for action and effect.

That capacity is called agency. To have agency is to operate with effect in the world. more>>

PHP for Non-Developers

Linux Journal - Tue, 06/30/2015 - 09:00

After years of making it clear that I'm not a developer in just about every article I've written here at Linux Journal, I do have a confession to make. I can write the "Hello World" equivalent in almost every programming language out there. In assembly, it might have been "1+1", but my lack of advanced skills should be evident. more>>

Secure Server Deployments in Hostile Territory

Linux Journal - Thu, 06/25/2015 - 13:25

Would you change what you said on the phone, if you knew someone malicious was listening? Whether or not you view the NSA as malicious, I imagine that after reading the NSA coverage on Linux Journal, some of you found yourselves modifying your behavior. The same thing happened to me when I started deploying servers into a public cloud (EC2 in my case). more>>

Django Templates

Linux Journal - Wed, 06/24/2015 - 09:00

In my last article (February 2015), I explained how to create a simple Django project ("atfproject") and inside that, create a simple application (atfapp). The application worked in that if you went to the URL http://localhost:8000/hello/Reuven, you got the text "hello, Reuven". more>>

Attack of the Drones

Linux Journal - Tue, 06/23/2015 - 10:24

With the price and size of computer hardware steadily decreasing, it's becoming more viable to use embedded Linux systems to control small robots and drones. There are plenty of projects for Raspberry Pi, but not everyone wants to build a drone from scratch. That's why enthusiasts will be pleased to hear about the new drones from Parrot.

diff -u: What's New in Kernel Development

Linux Journal - Wed, 06/17/2015 - 15:15

When you run a program as setuid, it runs with all the permissions of that user. And if the program spawns new processes, they inherit the same permissions. Not so with filesystem capabilities. When you run a program with a set of capabilities, the processes it spawns do not have those capabilities by default; they must be given explicitly. more>>
