Using LDAP For Single Authentication

Posted June 2nd, 2004 in Linux, News by Tobias

New How-To for Using LDAP for single authentication.

Ever think how nice it would be if you didn’t have 9 usernames and passwords to remember for all of the different services on all the different servers you use. Well you can if you have a LDAP directory with you username and password in it, and you configure all the services to use LDAP. This how-to is not the most comprehensive source for doing this, rather a step by step guide that should be enough to get you going in the right direction. This will let users have one account in LDAP and use any service on any server that you choose to allow. i.e. ssh, email, web permissions, samba file shares, ftp, and on and on…

MyContacts Now With Sessions

Posted March 22nd, 2004 in News by Tobias

Download MyContacts

MyContacts now supports session based authentication/access. I don’t really like using Apache for access so I added the option to use session based access in the config.php file. Besides adding some new features like sessions, it also includes utilities for adding/editing/deleting users and some minor bugfixes.

Check Out Clam Antivirus

Posted November 2nd, 2003 in Linux, News by Tobias

Open AntiVirus:

I received a reply this morning from a posting on one of Security Focus‘ mailing lists from Tomasz Papszun, a guy working on Clam AntiVirus.
Clam AntiVirus is an anti-virus toolkit for UNIX. The main purpose of this software is the integration with mail servers (attachment scanning). The package provides a flexible and scalable multi-threaded daemon, a command line scanner, and a tool for automatic updating via Internet. The programs are based on a shared library distributed with the Clam AntiVirus package, which you can use with your own software. The virus database is based on the virus database from OpenAntiVirus, but contains additional signatures (including signatures for popular polymorphic viruses, too) and is KEPT UP TO DATE.

This is one of the best projects I’ve seen in a while, so check ’em out by visiting their page, http://clamav.sourceforge.net.
