Reprinted from: Marcus Ranum's The Six Dumbest Ideas in Computer Security
There's lots of innovation going on in security - we're inundated with a steady stream of new stuff and it all sounds like it works just great. Every couple of months I'm invited to a new computer security conference, or I'm asked to write a foreword for a new computer security book. And, thanks to the fact that it's a topic of public concern and a "safe issue" for politicians, we can expect a flood of computer security-related legislation from lawmakers. So: computer security is definitely still a "hot topic." But why are we spending all this time and money and still having problems?
If your version of Ubuntu doesn't seem to have portaudio, you can either manually install portaudio from the URL above or download the Debian packages from:
Dependency for the development library.
This page explains how to get a Linux machine up and running on the WSU wireless network with the open source PPTP client. It assumes basic competency with Linux system administration. All commands must be run as root.
I've attached an experimental installer. You can find the link at the bottom of the page. I'd appreciate if some brave folks could try it out and comment. Thanks!
We've been invited to cooperate with the WSU chapter of IEEE. I'd like to use the thread attached to this article to discuss how we'd like to go about it.
We've been invited to show up to meetings, to attend IEEE events and to co-sponsor other events. We can co-host Tech Talks, etc.
Please post any thoughts you have on the subject.
Whether or not to vote in new officers or carry them over for another term. A poll has been set up to get peoples opinion. If we do revote we will need nominees for the offices.
LUG and IEEE will start co-hosting events like Tech Talks.
We are looking for a way to get more girls involved in LUG, any ideas are welcome
