The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, February 13. The meeting topic for this month is
Locking Down Linux
This month, MUUG member Shawn Wallbridge returns with a follow-up to
the November meeting topic. The many benefits to using Linux also make
it a prime target for attacks. The power of Linux also increases its
usefulness to crackers/hackers.
This presentation will cover various tools and methods to secure your
Linux machine. Some tools covered will be the Bastille hardening
script, PortSentry, and Tripwire. We will take a basic installation
and lock it down to limit the risk of a remote exploit.
The group holds its general meetings at 7:30 PM on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June. (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.
Please note our meeting location: IBM Canada's offices in the TD
Centre, at the corner of Portage and Main. We gather in the lobby on
the main floor - please try to be there by about 7:15 PM. Steve Moffat
will then take us up to the meeting room just before the meeting
starts at 7:30. Don't be late, or you may not get in.
Parking is available either in the parkade behind the TD building,
off Albert Street, or in the ground level lot just north of the TD
building. Entrance to the lot is from Albert Street, behind the
parkade. Either way, parking is a $1.25 flat rate for the evening.
You purchase your ticket from a dispenser, so make sure you've got
exact change - a loonie and a quarter, or 5 quarters.
