This group is for anyone that is interested in learning more about information security, networking, and Linux. We welcome all from beginner’s level and to expert. We focus discussions mainly on Linux / UNIX platforms, networking, and security. The main focus of this group is to find people that want to learn more about Linux, networking, and security. This group was founded to bring together an "IT community" interested in these topics and improving on everyone's best practices to keep our private data safe, and our systems under our own control.
