OpenBSD: Replacing WEP With IPsec

  View Printable Version 
OpenBSD/NetBSDJoshua Stein has written an article about using IPSec instead of WEP on wireless networks, under OpenBSD. From the article:
"WEP has been proven insecure and is thus inadequate for protecting a wireless network from eavesdropping or abuse. I have implemented IPsec with manual keying between a router and a client as a replacement."

.biz domains must wait two more weeks

  View Printable Version 
NewsNeuLevel, the company in charge of registering .biz top level domains, apparently have fouled up the process to such an extent that they have been ordered to get their act together by a U.S. judge.

Originally planned to start real-time registrations of .biz domains 23rd this month, the startup has been pushed to november 7. As with most other stuff happening in LaaLaa-land, NeuLevel have been sued for its handling of .biz-registrations. This comes in addition to the sorry handling of .info domains by Afilias.

Transmeta launches new Crusoe processor

  View Printable Version 
Transmeta, which designs energy-efficient chips for laptops, on Monday announced a new Crusoe chip that it said uses one-third the space on a notebook's motherboard than its current processors do.

Santa Clara, Calif.-based Transmeta said that because the Crusoe 6000 takes up less space than current versions of its chip, it is ideal for use in a growing number of smaller, thinner and lighter notebooks and handheld PCs.

Transmeta, which has suffered from dismal notebook sales in Japan, its principal market, said the Crusoe 6000 will be available in the second half of 2002 at speeds running at 1GHz.
