1 Afternotes Discussion on presentation of these slides made it clear to me that what I seek is simplification of the backup and recovery process, not just of data, but of the working system in a fashion that it can be transferred to different hardware if necessary. There are certainly some options out there for this, and the discussion was very helpful. Thanks OCLUG participants. JN

2 Operate from R/O – Does it exist? J C Nash -- March 2006 ● The wish list: ● Boot from r/o media, preferably write-protect USB, but possibly a CD ● Have SSH keys and other important files (?? passwd, etc.) on r/o media too ● Be able to configure / update easily ● /home or parts, /var or parts, ??others on separate partitions – and easy to set up / reconfigure as system grows ● easy backup and restore

3 What's out there? ● NSA Security Enhanced Linux – – focuses on kernel and utilities to enforce access control – likely NOT what I want, but.... – Seems to be FLOSS

4 Trustix Secure Linux ● ● Own installer SWUP / Viper (rpm based??) ● Keep it simple claim ● Server oriented (what I want!) ● Maintained ● Appears open and free ● Anybody have experience of it?

5 LIDS ● ● Linux Intrusion Detection System ● Probably somewhat orthogonal to my wants, but...

6 En Garde Secure Linux ● ● Simple & Secure Remote Administration ● Powerful Host Intrusion Detection ● Secure Network Services ● Built-in Support and Alerts ● Robust Network Intrusion Detection ● Quick and Secure Web, DNS , FTP ● Community edition free, but clear that it is commercial ● debian based (my preference)

7 Onward.... ● Plan to try to implement some sort of r/o bootup (e.g. could use a knoppix basis) ● BUT don't want lots of h/w detect each time – want faster reboot if necessary, with disk examination ● Willing to try one of the options above, esp. if others willing to share expertise and write up what is learned. ● Should OCLUG be a focus for such reports?
