Password-less ssh in 2 Glorious Steps…

Local System – Let’s call it alphaRemote System we don’t want to have to enter passwords for,Let’s call it foxtrot Prep: Harden your existing ssh keys since RSA 1024 sucks.

Goodbye Sun Microsystems…

So Oracle is in the final stages of buying Sun Microsystems Inc, a company I adored for years.

It’s sad to see, but after seeing Sun as the premier UNIX envorinment in the late […]
