:: Overview

Dan starts with an overview of SELinux: How is it different? Who should use it? What are the benefits for home users, small businesses, and non-server installations? Is installation and maintenance comparable with regular Linux distributions?

After establishing the application scope and benefits, Dan will cover the utilities, commands, administration, and general use of SELinux. You will learn how to use it, not just turn it off!

Web site disasters made easy…

InfoWorld: Application development relays a delightful tale of classic bungling in replacing an app in no need of replacement: Web site disasters made easy. “In 1997, I was working in the IT department at a midsize consumer products company in the San Francisco Bay Area. My job was mainly to keep the network up; the company had no Web presence. But as our competitors ate more and more of our lunch, it gradually dawned on management that we ought to be selling online. So I built a LAMP (Linux, Apache, and Perl/Python/PHP) sales portal that handled online ordering and a corporate Web site. It generated revenue from the outset.”

I think most software developers have seen similar tales. This one's told well.
