SSH helps keep us secure in many ways, one of those is the host-key fingerprint which is unique. If you have been connecting to an SSH server that you've made no changes to and suddenly ssh warns that the key doesn't match then you have a problem.
But how about connecting to an existing server for the first time on a new machine or client?
A lot of new clients calculate it using an SHA256 hash but it is not as easy on your host machine to produce the sam........
This error is commonly due to Java security or TLS settings but there is a second issue with forwarded ports that also causes it.
1. Java Security/TLS Settings issue:
This article has the solution to change them all in Linux automatically
2. Port Forwarding Issue if your Avocent DSR is behind NAT/private IP........
This is especially helpful if you run your own servers. If you are presented with an error message or warning that the signature has changed or does not match the IP/domain you are connecting to you always want to verify manually.
So your e-mail/web client will show you an SHA-1 fingerprint like this:
"Could not verify this certificate because the issuer is unkown" or other reasons such as a mismatch in IP/domain.
It will also show you........
Many users still are not aware but simply patching OpenSSL does not secure you against many known and easy to exploit attacks that will render your encryption useless by an attacker.
Use the following setings in /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf

A lot of people become nervous (and understandably so) when checking their auth or security logs, in Centos /var/log/secure and see dozens, hundreds of even thousands of attempted logins to various services, especially SSH.
Of course you could manually block these people/IPs but no one has time to read the logs like that, what if some program or script could do it for you?
This is what denyhosts does for you, it checks the logs and based on a certain number of failed SSH attem........
Telus + 2Wire 2700 Router HorribleWell first of all let me say this is the only router/switch that sometimes seems to crash/disconnect computers on the local network.
This device also thought it would be smart to block VOIP packets coming from my Sipura ATA VOIP adapters so I disabled the [quote:cb89ba7bff]"Invalid TCP Flag Attacks (NULL/XMAS/Other)"[/quote:cb89ba7bff] option
Then all of a sudden I couldn't get onto any web pages, the wireless........

Symantec is introducing a new intrusion detection product that uses behavioural analysis to block potential attacks on enterprise networks.
The new Critical System Protection 4.5 system uses technology that Symantec acquired through last year’s purchase of Platform Logic. It is designed to protect deskt........
