Step 1: Login

Posted 08-20-2012 at 01:59 PM by kbscores

So this weekend I was doing some research on limiting remote logins. There are so many ways to login to a system the easiest way is just to block everything and then allow essential protocols through. Most common way to access a Linux system remotely is through SSH.
I always thought that getty was used in conjunction with SSH for logging into a system, but it is not. Silly me. So how it works is getty is first checked by init, if everything looks good init spawns a getty process for each...

Steam Linux and Future of Gaming

Posted 07-27-2012 at 11:24 AM by kbscores

It is becoming apparent that Microsoft wants to dominate the gaming market or rather every technology market. With rumors surfacing about the new digital key requirements in Windows 8 , doors have began to open for Linux. Take for instance Steam. The mobile client for steam comes on two types of systems iphones and droids. What’s missing? The Windows 7 phone apparently had the opportunity to have the steam client, but refused it in order to promote their games through “Games for Windows”. ...

Authentication to OpenLDAP

Posted 07-13-2012 at 12:44 PM by kbscores

We finally got authentication on Solaris 10 client to work with Linux OpenLDAP Client. It is a little strange because for authentication to work the Solaris machine requires a user account to exist on that box. I believe the reason it is required is because we remove the native ldap, which in turn removes cache manager. The service nscd utilizes cache manager when ldap is in place. Since we no longer have cache manager nscd becomes worthless to authentication process. As one guide so eloquently...

Third time is a charm –

Posted 07-12-2012 at 05:11 PM by kbscores

Honestly it has been a fun and frustrating process. I have learned a lot about openldap as well as compiling programs. There are moments where I genuinely believed that it was not possible, but alas we have made it. Let me first mention that depending on the state of your Solaris server these instructions might change dramatically. Note this process was completed successfully on a fresh install of Solaris 10.

OpenLDAP +Solaris = /facepalm

Posted 07-09-2012 at 02:06 PM by kbscores

Setting up ldap even with TLS on a Linux (specifically RedHat) is a fairly simple process. You simply download the file, install, and configure. Easy. Even the biggest problems are solved within minutes. This does not seem to be the case with Solaris. We are now fighting round three with the Solaris servers. We started by trying to configure the Native. It seems as if there are many more successful Native guides out there. We got the schemas. We created the ldif entry. We used ldapclient...
