Its been a long time since my last blog entry. What have i been up too with Linux?

Well for the better part i decided to let go of my confort zone in Linux, Redhat based distros. I manage a few servers that are setup with Fedora. I learned Linux on Redhat and always stayed with it.

In search for C/C++ Programmer

Posted in

We're a non profit organization that is searching for a C/C++ Linux Programmer for our video broadcast system. We will use Aja OEM cards with SDI Video & AES Audio output on something like CentOS Linux.

We want to develop 3 services: A Media player that waits for its playlist by listening to an IP port, a playlist service that makes up the playlist by reading infos on an SQL server, a copy service that will intelligently pull MPEG2 avi files from a server by FTP and place them locally on the playing server while managing local hard disk space.

The Debian OpenSSL Fiasco.

Posted in

On May 13th, Debian announced that there is a bug in the way SSH RSA/1024 and DSA/2048 were generated, the actual probelm was that the keys were not random enough, given time and resources you can generate enough keys to use in a brute force attack. Aside from the obvious, I have my own thoughts on the matter.

First, I was mad, really mad. How can Debian miss such a glaring hole? And then I read the description of what actually happened - I won't go in detail here, you can find it online - and guess what, I got even MORE mad. This was beyond a simple mistake, this was bad management.
