Subject: Open source data control for cloud services with Apache Ranger

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

As the movement to migrate enterprise data to the cloud gathers steam, there is an active debate on the best approach to securing and protecting it. But before we talk about the details of the various access control frameworks, let us first understand the breadth of challenges a company faces when it begins migrating its data to the cloud. First and foremost is the wide array of storage and analysis or compute services offered by cloud and third-party providers.

We'll just let muted videos autoplay on Chrome for Android because publishers can't be stopped.

Garbage article. I've never had a computer damaged by thermal shock; lightning shock, yes. In the last 30 years every computer I've owned has been replaced for one reason: obsolescence. A tiny number might have had a motherboard failure. More, when you count laptops, but nobody's talking about running those 24/7.

[ If that's the typical experience for desktop/workstation home/business users (and I think it usually is), then the energy cost argument simply does not add up.

Subject: Best Terminal Games on Linux

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

GNU/Linux gaming has come a long way over the past decade. We are lucky to live in an age where there are a number of native linux games including AAA titles to choose from on the platform. Steam has also vastly increased the number of games available on Linux. Despite the vast availability of GUI based games, sometimes it can be more relaxing and entertaining to play terminal based ones. This is not so surprising considering the fact that most Linux users spend a lot of time on the command line and feel at home there. Luckily, there are a number of great terminal based games available on the platform as well.

Restricting access to a resource is often required when using the web. On complex web applications, this is often implemented using a login system which can be more or less sophisticated. If our requirements our pretty basic, however, we can use the authentication system provided by the Apache web server. In this tutorial we will see how can we do it.

All servers that are exposed to the Internet are at risk of malware attacks. For example, if you have a software connected to a public network, attackers can use brute-force attempts to gain access to the application. Fail2ban is an open-source tool that helps protect your Linux machine from brute-force and other automated attacks by monitoring the services logs for malicious activity. It uses regular expressions to scan log files. This article explains how to install and configure Fail2ban on CentOS 8.
