Linux is a very strong platform for budding artists, photographers, animators, and designers. With inexpensive hardware, free software, and a modicum of talent and inspiration, anyone can create professional-looking computer graphics.There is a huge range of Open Source software available to create, modify and convert 2D and 3D computer graphics. To provide an insight into the software that is available, here is a compiled a list of http://en.digitalkamera.com/25-best-free-linux-graphics-soft...
>25 high quality Linux graphics applications. The vast majority of the software featured here sport an attractive graphical front-end, although we have not neglected console based applications.
EnGarde, a GNU/Linux-based operating system produced by Guardian Digital, aims to provide a secure system that is easy to manage from anywhere. Its philosophy of including only what you need to lessen possible vulnerabilities, combined with strict SELinux application policies and default configurations tuned for security, make EnGarde an excellent base for a server -- though it's not without its problems.
Human error and evolving phishing attacks will compel organizations to tighten control over application access, not just user access. Guardian Digital, the open source security pioneer, forecasts an increased need for comprehensive control over Internet and employee resources with 'least privilege' engineering in 2008. "Most vendors don't stress least privilege enough in their development architecture, especially with the increasing threats from human error and employee liability" says CEO Dave Wreski. "Security in 2007 has shown just how effective attackers can be at gaining authorized access to corporate resources. One of the best ways to protect against this is to lock down application access, not just user access."
LinuxSecurity.com: There are already tons of written Snort rules, but there just might be a time where you need to write one yourself. You can think of writing Snort rules as writing a program. They can include variables, keywords and functions. Why do we need to write rules? The reason is, without rules Snort will never detect someone trying to hack your machine. This HOWTO will give you confidence to write your own rules.
Secret knocks have been used for purposes as simple and childish as identifying friend or foe during a schoolyard fort war. Fraternities teach these knocks as a rite of passage into their society, and in our security world we can implement this layer of security to lock down an SSH server. With this guide on FWKNP by Eckie S. (one of our own), you are taken on an easy-to-follow process of securing your platform with your own client and server port knocking set-up. Installation, iptable Rules setup, configuring access for the client and server, and everything in between. Check it out!

GNU/Linux -- Like No Other Hotrod, Ever
While others appear to be going backwards, Linux just keeps racing ahead.
'Linux supports more devices, "out of the box", than any other operating system ever has.'
"Yes, that's right, we support more things than anyone else. And more than anyone else ever has in the past. Linux has a very long list of things that we have supported before anyone else ever did."
-- Greg Kroah-Hartman, OLS 2006 Keynote

EnGarde Secure Linux is a Linux server distribution that is geared toward providing a open source platform that is highly secure by default as well as easy to administer.
EnGarde Secure Linux is a server-based distribution developed with security in mind. It comes with a minimal set of services so that the server is not unnecessarily exposed, and no superfluous software -- including no X Window-based window manager. Even compilers, such as GCC, are not included. Yet EnGarde enables you to run any sort of Web presence, from a simple mail server to a complete e-commerce site.
Security Enhanced Linux, or SELinux, is an exciting security project that is reaching maturity and poised to revolutionize the way Linux security administration is performed. Originally developed by the National Security Agency and released as an open source project, but now breaking into the mainstream in Red Hat, Fedora, Gentoo, and the new release of EnGarde Secure Linux 3.0, it incorporates Mandatory Access Control into a base Linux system. This is a revolutionary advance, but is also very different from the standard Linux security model. This week in Hacks From Pax, I'll provide a basic introduction to the philosophy behind SELinux, and explain how it can add a powerful layer of security to your Linux system.
Guardian Digital is pleased to announce the release of EnGarde Community v3.0. This release represents the most significant number of improvements since the first version released more than four years ago.
