Why Do We Need Specialist Security Distros?

by Mayank Sharma | February 2008 | Linux Servers Open Source

Many popular distributions, community-oriented and otherwise, take security very seriously. They have dedicated security teams that go over individual packages before they're rolled into a final release. To make sure you don't have any loose ends, these distributions and many other individual Open Source projects also publish an endless stream of security advisories and updates. Add to this security mechanisms like SELinux, AppArmor, and the upcoming TOMOYO Linux, and SMACK, and you know they mean business. So what room does this leave for specialist security distros?

Remembering all login IDs and passwords for all the Internet forums and communities that you are part of, is indeed an onerous task and one more registration for a new site seems like one too many. We have all tried to get around these problems by jotting down passwords on pieces of paper or sticking notes to our terminal – all potentially dangerous practices that defeat the very purpose of keeping a digital identity secure.

Gurudutt Talgery shows a solution to this problem in this article. A solution, which is free, non-proprietary, open standards based, extensible, community-driven framework with Open Source libraries and helpful tutorials to get you on board, called OpenID.

Moving a Database from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008 in Three Steps

by Jayaram Krishnaswamy | February 2008 | .NET Microsoft

There are several options if one wishes to move a database from a SQL Server 2005 to SQL 2008 Server. First of all there is a 'Copy Database Wizard' in SQL 2008 Server which is meant for transferring a database from any version of SQL Server 2000 and above to 2008 version. In the other option the database will be copied using the SQL Server Management Program for which the source database need not be stopped. However this is slower than the previous method and would also require the SQL Server Agent since a package has to be run.

An option which works without too much hassles is manually detaching and attaching the database/log files. In this step-by-step (really two steps) tutorial by Jayaram Krishnaswamy, this simple procedure is described. If you are just interested in taking a small database from 2005 to 2008 server the author strongly recommends this procedure.
