Security: #1 Reason Users in Asia choose Open Source  17 October 2007  Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Source: LinuxWorld - Posted by Ryan Berens   
Latest News According to a report performed by IDC Research: organizations perceived open source technology as providing better security compared to proprietary products... In reality, it seems that the advantages of open source security are taking hold, so much in fact, that they are the primary reason for adoption in Asia and the region. So maybe, when Microsoft and other firms can't artificially meddle with the system, look what happens - the people speak and the choice is clear. Is the reason because proprietary versions are so insecure, that Linux is secure by comparison? Or is it that Linux, by nature, gets more attention from a driven community to create platforms that are inherently better engineered, for more security through development?
How much longer does AppArmor really have?  16 October 2007  Print E-mail

Latest News As of today, Novel has dissolved the AppArmor development team, centered around main developer, Crispin Cowan.

For a long time, AppArmor has been slow to be adopted due to the nature of its security structure (it differs from SELinux by its adherence to using names).

The issue here seems to be that without a funded back-end by Novell, how much longer does AppArmor really have? Is this a case of survival of the fittest? Could a name-based structure ever succeed? Certainly, with backing from Novell now gone, it may be safe to say that the project may only have another year. While a few distributions still include that support, will they be willing to include it in one year, without a large corporate backer?

It seems unlikely, at best, that another large organization is going to rise to take Novell's place, and without that AppArmor's days may be numbered.

Latest News The BOSSIES, or Best of Open Source Software awards, are a yearly ranking of some of the highest ranked open source tools and projects. In this year's Security category, they included many, but not all, of the best tools. And although they didn't, it is, as always a great overview of what's going on in the industry. Standard winners include Snort for Intrusion detection, Nessus for scanning, ClamAV for Anti-virus, other old-timers, and a couple of new comers. But what about the manual?
