Manual Keying IPSec on OpenBSD 2.9

  View Printable Version 
OpenBSD/NetBSDThis is basically an explanation of doing manual keyed IPSec between two OpenBSD 2.9 servers. Due to errors I have found in all IPsec documentation, not to mention much confusion reading them, I have compiled together what worked for me from all of the man pages. This doesn't cover using ISAKMPD -- that will be documented later on.

This isn't the most easy way or flexible way of setting up IPSec, but it is a clearer way and a more controlled way. I went this route when I was having problems with ISAKMPD.

NT 4.0 MCSEs gets to keep certification

  View Printable Version 
WindowsAccording to rumours all over the place, wingeeks certified as MCSE on NT 4.0 will keep their certifications forever. Instead of dumping this MCSE certification on new years day 2002, it will be renamed "MCSE on Windows NT 4.0" and be valid for the holders lifetime. Other MCSE certifications will be renamed accordingly; "MCSE on Windows 2000" and so on.

Seems Bill and Steve finally crumpled from the pressure and separated the customers technology skills from its own upgrade and marketing plans.

Keep an eye on Microsoft Training & Services for the official news. If it ever happens.

Lord of the Rings

  View Printable Version 

December 19 this year will see the premiere of the film version of Tolkiens Lord Of The Rings. While I doubt the athmosphere of the book will survive the Hollywood stereotyping, you on the other hand, can surf over to Apple and watch the theatrical trailer. There's a multitude of versions to see, depending on the fatness of your internet pipe.

Redmond Circus: No rest for the wicked

  View Printable Version 
NewsComing as no surprise to many who have followed the case, the U.S. Supreme Court Tuesday declined to hear Microsoft's last-ditch appeal in its ongoing antitrust case.

The U.S. Supreme Court announced Tuesday that it will not hear Microsoft's (Nasdaq: MSFT) appeal of a U.S. Court of Appeals ruling on its antitrust violations.

As is its normal practice, the Supreme Court declined further comment. Had the case been heard, it would have delayed the impending penalties faced by the Redmond, Washington-based software giant.

Nokia's (BSD) Security Connection

  View Printable Version 
Security
From Yahoo! Finance: "It's not just about cell phones anymore. At least, that's the message coming from wireless giant Nokia. Over the past three years, Nokia Internet Communications, a U.S.-based division of the Finnish company, has grown from a pipsqueak in security to a force to be reckoned with. According to tech researcher IDC, Nokia is quickly grabbing market share in the exploding market for firewall/VPN appliances."

"UNIFIED INTERFACE.
What exactly does Nokia sell? Put simply, it designs computers equipped with a specially designed, hard-to-hack version of the open-source BSD operating system, a branch of the Unix family that also includes Linux. These machines are specially optimized to run software from leading security vendors, including firewalls from market leader Check Point (NasdaqNM:CHKP), intrusion-detection systems from Internet Security Systems (NasdaqNM:ISSX), and antivirus software from MacAfee. The only major pieces that Nokia itself contributes are VPN-management software and a management console that makes it easier for security engineers to monitor multiple products in a single, unified interface."
