Privacy, Security, Encryption I've bored the readers of my personal website to death with two rather prosaic articles debating the Linux security model, in direct relation to Windows and associated claims of wondrous infections and lacks thereof. However, I haven't yet discussed even a single program that you can use on your Linux machine to gauge your security. For my inaugural article for OSNews, I'll leave the conceptual stuff behind, and focus on specific vectors of security, within the world of reason and moderation that I've created and show you how you can bolster a healthy strategy with some tactical polish, namely software.

Unfortunately Firestarter isn't particularly maintained anylonger, except occasional patches from the community. Otherwise a (very bestest) great GUI-tool for managing firewalls.

What little I have used it I haven't found any bugs or missing features, the only thing that needs improvement is the looks and flow of action. And that should be rather easy to improve on, I might even try it myself when I get bored ;)
