The final step of a software project created for a client is its delivery and implementation. The delivery process should ensure confidentiality and security for the customer and be resistant to potential attacks. Today we will discuss how this process is accomplished by EuroLinux.
Backporting is the task of taking a bugfix from the latest version of an upstream software package and applying that fix to an older version of the same software. It is part of the preservation step in the application development process, and is sometimes used to add new features to older versions of software.
A firewall is what ensures the protection of systems of a broad availability. It allows a precise setup of trust, thus in the context of networking it’s also about access control, for domains. Today we’ll discuss the concepts and inner workings of the network filter that EuroLinux 8 uses – firewalld.
The YubiHSM 2 FIPS is a Cryptographic Hardware Security Module used primarily for generating, protecting and storing cryptographic keys. Since we at EuroLinux utilize HSMs (Hardware Security Modules), we decided to create an article being a practical example of using YubiHSM 2 FIPS in Linux systems.
Although EuroLinux 8 is not directly affected by this vulnerability, we have introduced a mechanism to mitigate the Log4Shell vulnerability that works with applications using Log4j.
FreeIPA provides a centrally managed identity, policy and auditing system. It uses a combination of open source solutions: 389 Directory Server, MIT Kerberos, NTP, DNS, DogTag certificate system, SSSD and other open source components.
