Thanks for your joining in bulliver. I'll contact you to go over the details. Jdii1215, thanks for your input. Of course you're both invited to join the mailinglist.

Grim, LOL! I was wondering why we didn't hear from you :-]
Just start by adressing the topics you find the most important, ok?

I joined today.

I am still a bit of a n00b and I didn't know didily squat about network security until my 2K box got ha><0r3d

I am running Mandrake 9 and Slack 9, but It has been hard to boot that mandrake.
Slack is almost addictive

With so many posts on the thread, it's entirely possible that I have overlooked someone else posting this same item, but in the context of the original question regarding suitable material written at the newcomer level (ie, suitable for someone like me) perhaps this material may be useful: http://jetblackz.freeservers.com/ esp. Chapter 4

It sounds like there's a lot of momentum already building up with all the gurus and on this thread, and unfortunately I am too much of a newcomer to add anything meaningful to the discussion, but I wanted at least to at least chip in with the link, in the hopes that it might be helpful and/or useful. On that note, I'd just like to thank you guys for all the time you devote to the LQ site. I have learned *so* much just from reading your (and others') posts here. -- J.W.

all aboard

well i just stumbled on to LQ recently. I've been securing a RH 8 server for the DOE. I'm interested in working on any subject that someone wants to toss me. i'll write it up just as dumb as needs be. its a long and painful task to lock down a box. i know that it could be much easier. the info seems to be so spread out thats it hard to obtain it all. at least i know that even a vanilla install is more secure than any MS box!!! well, give me a subject and i'll write some steps for ya.

hi all

Just thought Id add my 2 pence worth.

Im not totally new to security (having studied it for my MSc) but I have more windows and general encryption knowledge than Linux. So I decided that I would create a secure E-Commerce Solution using LAMP for my MSc dissertation (which Im starting now).

All Id like to say is Im sure I'll be posting quite a lot in order to get advice opinion and help (so thanks in advance). The point of this post though is that once this project is completed if it would help I can place my project document on-line and also create simple step by step FAQ's based on what is included in the project.

If this will help a little please let me know

Heh. Out of touch. Yeah. But u're back, right? Throw in the synogizmoidal thingie! Who knows what we can lear from it....

IMHO LQ wouldn't be the place to post a dissertation, but if you can condense your knowledge into derivatives of the HOWTO category that would be excellent material!

Thats what I was thinking, Once I finish the project off I'll try to knock together a how to based on producing a secure E-Commerce solution.

I just skimmed the entire thread, so apologies in advance if this is repeated elsewhere:

Newbie How-to's can be found on http://justlinux.com (Newbie Help Files) and http://tinyminds.org (Tinyminds Cheat Sheets).

I find that linuxquestions.org, justlinux.com and tinyminds.org to be the best and most active newbie sites. A linuxquestions how-to project is a great idea!
