Hacking a Safe with Bash

Through the years, I have settled on maintaining my sensitive data in
plain-text
files that I then encrypt asymmetrically. Although I take care to harden my
system and encrypt partitions with LUKS wherever possible, I want to secure my
most important data using higher-level tools, thereby lessening dependence on
the underlying system configuration. more>>

Information about the development status

Actually, since 2011, the project is maintained only by me, Alexander Löhner.  In the last weeks there were two guys that have sent some really helpful pull requests to the repository. But that was just like a small drop in the bucket. So I’m doing all the administrative, programming, supporting and fixing work alone on my own and […]

Embed Linux in Monitoring and Control Systems

The target vehicle for this project is a vintage intercity transport bus (think
Greyhound) whose instrument panel was sparse and mostly nonfunctional.
The speedometer cable was twisted off some place back in 40 feet of
cable,
and the fuel sensor had sunk long ago. What I wanted was an instrument
panel more in line with modern practice.

Kernel Prepatch 4.2-rc3

The third 4.2 kernel prepatch is out for testing. Linus says: “Normal Sunday release schedule, and a fairly normal rc release. There was some fallout from the x86 FPU cleanups, but that only hit CPU’s with the xsaves instruction, and it should be all…
