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.

GUi Uncomplicated FireWall. Seems pretty logical, though not as sexy as iGUFW.

GUi Uncomplicated FireWall.

And that's not even good English. ;) A more correct name would have been: Uncomplicated GUI Firewall (UGF). But then again programmers like to program, not think up fancy names or write documentation. ;-)
