I hope that there will be at least a persons or so willing to buy the printed version for a reasonable price. After this, it is all a matter of keeping those few packages you have installed up to date.

Oskar Andreasson IP Tables Tutorial – The Community’s Center for Security

Please login or register. If there is any Swedish speaking people, I suggest them to check out http: When finally installed, erase everything not needed, including the man reader.

If not, well, it would be sad if not even persons liked it enough to actually buy it. What do you feel is the most common Linux system vulnerability?

Iptables-tutorial : Frozentux

The iptables-tutorial is currently rather stable, and contains information on all the currently available rutorial and targets in kernelas well as a couple of complete example scripts and explanations. The second time around, “it” crashed my monitor OK, I had to blame something, didn’t I and I had to get another monitor out on the warranty.

Closed source on the other hand is harder to debug for a third party, and if you really do find a bug, you are more likely to just throw the bug on the crap pile and hope for it to be fixed ttorial the next release, they don’t feel anything in common for the actual development of the product nor do they actually have a good reason for telling tutogial developers about the bug.


Arbitrary command execution Debian LTS: My answer to the first question would, hence, be that they might do errors due to a lack of documentation. Then there was problems with the size of the cover generated in their own webtoolsetc. It was not until or so that I started seeing Linux around and tested it. It was available in bookform from Lulu. However, a firewall is never near good enough based on only a packet filtering mechanism.

After this I need to go through the explanation of the rc. As it looks now, I want to finish the chapter about how a rule is written, and then I want to add a chapter about the state machine.

These errors might be unknown to the Linux administrator for a long time and, in the long run they may notice the error to late. After some months I had the first version of the tutorial published. However, I don’t plan to get this project really moving until the iptables tutorial has stabilized, in perhaps months.

It contains a complete section on iptables syntax, as well as other interesting commands such as iptables-save and iptables-restore. During the time, I was also doing a lot of “work” for our site www. If you need help, you oskra better off by asking the netfilter mailing list which you can reach at netfilter at lists.

Tricky question, I don’t know really. Also, some commands and functions are clearly not documented enough.


Do you believe the open source nature of Linux provides a superior vehicle to making security vulnerabilities easier to spot and fix?

However, I haven’t gotten very far so far since I have run into problems with the whole deal. After that it took a year or so until I tried getting Linux to run again, and by that time it had evolved incredibly I could get it to install, isn’t that evolution? If anyone living in Sweden Stockholm knows about a party of computers of any type that some company or private person is willing to give away, either as junk, or just as owkar contribution, I will owe them extremely much.


The aim of the iptables-tutorial is to explain iptables in a complete and simple way.

To leave packages such as these without documentation makes people go away and start using other operating systems such as Windows.

Brazilian bank Inter pays ttutorial over customer data leak.

I most definitely think so. I hope that the iptables-tutorial give Linux administrators the possibility to easily learn about netfilter and iptables and in an as complete document as possible. In his document, he discusses such topics the basics of configuring the kernel, configuring Red Hat to prepare for using IP Tables, a basic description of the iptables command, a number of great firewall examples, and more.

One example would be iptables in the beginning, by today there is a wast amount of documentation and different introductions etceteras.

Oskar, thanks much for your time, and we look forward i;tables reading your future Linux security documents. This would more or less be a way for me to get some money from the project, and a way for those who has read and liked it to actually contribute to what I have written and to show that they support me.
