Join us for a presentation on Linux Permissions.
Linux as a multi-user OS, must keep user accounts securely separated from each other. This is achieved through elaborate permissions scheme, and ACLs. This presentation will look at ways to manage user permissions, and how to ensure ordinary users don't inadvertently gain root status.
Further, we will look at how to secure a system to prevent even root from being able to do damage without the system immediately alerting the sysadmin.
The meeting is Wednesday, January 25, 2012, at 7 PM.
We'll meet at The Beat Coffee House, upstairs in /usr/lib. It's in
Downtown Las Vegas, on Fremont East, across the street from the
El Cortez Hotel and Casino, at the corner of Fremont & 6th Street.
