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.

It's nice to see common sense articles like this one, and helpful, too. Hopefully it will also demonstrate that Windows users are not only affected by viruses, malware, and all of that, but they don't have any useful logging capabilities either. Linux is amazing when it comes to logs. Logs are kept for everything, and are a tremendous help when trying to troubleshoot something. In Windows, logs are an afterthought, and makes troubleshooting more difficult as we find ourselves looking around for solutions with symptoms. On Linux where we can look at a lot and determine where to go next.
