"(LinuxSecurity Brasil) What's your HOME
operation system of choice, why?
Win98 for desktop and laptop, Linux for file and mail server, NT
server formerly for FrontPage/auth (now decommissioned), OpenBSD
(security logging/testing), Solaris 8 and Novell 5 (moving auth to
it). Basically whichever tool is best for the job, I hate all OS's
equally, they all have their good and bad points."
"(LinuxSecurity Brasil) Can you tell me 1 thing
any system administrator's should do on a daily basis for better
security of their systems?
Education. Never stop learning. Read websites, books, email
lists, etc. Set aside some time each day to learn something. I
spend 10-40 hours a week doing research and learning new
"(LinuxSecurity Brasil) Which are the real
benefits of IPv6? Is it coming to cure all IPv4 weakness? Will
people be less concerned about their privacy?
Smaller routing tables (hopefully). Privacy wise IPv6 is not
better then IPv4, in some ways possibly worse since the last part
of your IPv6 address can be your MAC address, although this is
optional. IPSec protects privacy between machines, to a degree, but
it will be a long time before it is widely implemented (we need
infrastructure like DNSSEC first)."
