This week, the interesting articles include, "Make SSH do more," "Tools and Their Signatures, Part One: bind8x.c," and "Using Certificate Revocation Lists." Also, today the i386 version of EnGarde Secure Linux v1.0.1 will be available for download. Please see EngardeLinux.org to download it.
FEATURE STORY: Using GnuPG with Pine for Secure E-Mail Many people have no problems sending sensitive data via e-mail. Most of us do not know how easy it is for anybody to read it. Just because somebody holds the title of "Systems Administrator" does not mean they can be trusted. What is stopping them from reading your e-mail? Nothing. This is where PGP comes in; it is easy-to-use encryption meant for the common person.
This week, advisories were released for xntp3, ntpd, vim, mailx, kernel, pine, netscape, and mc. The vendors include Conectiva, Caldera, Debian, EnGarde, Immunix, Mandrake, NetBSD, Progeny, Red Hat, Slackware, SuSE, and Trustix.
