Why Security Distributions Use Debian

Debian may not talk a lot about security, but then fish rarely talk about water, either.

What do distributions like Qube OS, Subgraph, Tails, and Whonix have in common? Besides an emphasis on security and privacy, all of them are Debian derivatives -- and, probably, this common origin is not accidental.

At first, this trend seems curious.

How to use IP (replacement for ifconfig) Command on Linux

IP command is similar to ifconfig, which is very familiar for assigning Static IP Address, Route & Default Gateway, etc.,.

Internetdagarna 2016 – Engaging Privacy

DFRI är med och arrangerar Engaging Privacy – två heldagar under Internetdagarna 21 och 22 november som handlar om integritet.

Som medlem i DFRI kan du uppge rabattkoden IND16 och få 20 procents rabatt på biljetten.

Här lite mer om vad Engaging Privacy-dagarna på Internetdagarna är:

Engaging Privacy, ISOC-SE, OKSE, DFRI och IIS anordnar två heldagar under Internetdagarna för dig som vill lyssna, lära och själv komma på idéer om hur din organisation och samhällets olika aktörer bättre kan hantera personuppgifter av olika slag. För att värna integriteten och för att skapa större tillit på internet.

Personlig information är en central del i hur många företag och myndigheter utvecklar produkter, levererar service och skapar förståelse. Samtidigt som denna insamling leder till bättre produkter och tjänster finns det en stor oro kring hur sådan data hanteras – i vilken utsträckning respekteras medborgares personliga integritet?

På Engaging Privacy-spåren vill vi förstå hur näringslivet och offentligheten samt vanliga medborgare och konsumenter ser på denna insamling och ansvaret för den personliga integriteten. Utifrån detta vill vi föra ett samtal kring fördelar, nackdelar, hot och möjligheter för att tillsammans försöka skapa en bättre integritetsmiljö i Sverige. Vi inleder båda dagarna med fyra talare som ger sina perspektiv på dilemmat, och därefter samlas vi i en gemensam workshop för att utveckla hållbara lösningar på relevanta problem kring personlig data.

21 november pratar vi om näringslivet: https://internetdagarna.se/program/engaging-privacy-naringslivet/
22 november pratar vi om offentlig sektor: https://internetdagarna.se/program/engaging-privacy-offentlig-sektor/

Installing NVIDIA Drivers All Major Linux Distributions

NVIDA supports Linux with its proprietary drivers nearly as well as it does Windows. That said, it's no secret that NVIDIA has long been the go-to choice for gaming on Linux. Unfortunately, even though the drivers support Linux well, installing them can become more complicated when dealing with different distributions. In many cases, the process is very simple but not well documented. In others, it's a bit tougher, but there is no reason that you can't get the latest NVIDIA drivers for your graphics card working on most major distributions.

Due to its extreme popularity, Ubuntu tends to be a target for support from third party developers and hardware manufacturers. NVIDIA is no exception,
