Source: - Posted by Vincenzo Ciaglia   
Security Projects I'm ready to announce that Linux Netwosix 1.2 is ready. I have completely rebuilt , upgraded and secured the system. Please, read the Announcement Release. Is based on the powerful and reliable Kernel 2.6.9 and has been created for the requirements of every SysAdmin. Nepote contains the updated packages. You can download Netwosix from our Download Center or from one of our mirrors. Thank you! . . . What's Netwosix ?


Linux Netwosix is a powerful and optimized Linux distribution for servers and Network Security related jobs. It can also be used for special operations such as penetration testing with its big collection of security oriented software and sources. It's a light distribution created for the requirements of every SysAdmin and it's very portable and highly configurable. Our philosophy is to give greater liberty for configuration to the SysAdmin. Only in this way can he/she configure a powerful and stable server machine. Linux Netwosix also has a powerful ports system (Nepote) similar to the xBSD systems but more flexible and usable.



The system has been completely rebuilt, now assures a high security for your network. Linux Netwosix 1.2 resolves all the critical problems discovered into releases 1.0 and 1.1 and now could be considered like one of the most important distribution in this field thanks to its lightweight and clear structure and now it's more configurable and secure.
