Interfacing with a Hardware Security Module on Linux
location: linuxexchange.com - date: October 25, 2012
I have to work with an HSM device for security requirements in my project. I am confused about how HSM is interfaced with C on a Linux machine.
How does a user access HSM internal memory for performing different operations with it?
Hardware security module [closed]

Does anyone know aobut HSMs supporting C#? I googled and got 3 vendors. But there's no information given on there sites about whether they support C# and I would like to know the prices also.
The three HSM vendors:
Any suggestions appreciated!
How to register Linux Security Module in kernel 2.6?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: November 15, 2010
I want to use the LSM framework with kernel ubuntu 2.6.36.
When I compiled the kernel module, it wrote:
WARNING: "register_security " undefined!
After a lot of googlings, I found the reason is that the register_security() symbol is no longer exported in the 2.6 kernel.
So I added EXPORT_SYMBOL(register_security) in the ../security/security.c file, and recompiled the kernel.
After booting with the new kernel, I added extern int register_security(struct security_operations *ops) in my kernel module file, and compiled the module again.
However, the WARNING information still existed. If I continued to insmode the module, the dmesg told me that
Unknown symbol register_security
What should I do? How can I register a LSM moudle?
Thanks a lot in advance!

hi, a couple of my friends are going to buy new computers - either a desktop or laptop. both will probably buy something Linux compatible if they can get it easily, after my going on about it so much but, it doesn't seem that easy to just buy something you know will run Linux.
what's the easiest way to make sure something you are going to buy will run Linux? are there any good sites, or lists of pre-built desktops which are best to get? if i knew it would work and it was easy, i wouldn't mind putting something together, as i'll probably set them up anyway. BTW, i live in the UK. thanks.
Lenovo x121e i3 Linux Hardware Compatability

This thread's aim is to provide a single up to date source for hardware compatibility for the Lenovo x121e (in particular the i3 variant) laptop. There are a number of detailed threads around that already cover the generals about the hardware, but don't specifically deal with Ubuntu/Linux support. Please post any updates or revisions and I will keep this initial post up to date

Toshiba Portege R700 / R705 Linux Hardware Compatibility Thread
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 10, 2010
Ive recently purchased a number of newly released Toshiba portege R700-15U business laptops. There was (and still is) very little linux related support information available due to it being a very new model so I have started to document the hardware compatibility under ubunutu 10.04. This is not intended to be a review or discussion of the laptop features, but a collation of compatibility info and fixes for this laptop under linux for owners or those looking to to buy one.
The R705 shares almost all the same components as the R700. It just lacks a number of features (bluetooth? fingerprint reader, express slot?, 5400rpm drive?) present on the R700 so there is no reason why it cant be tracked here also.
Feel free to post updates and I will keep this chart fresh.
Test OS: Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx amd64. Alternate installer, for encrypted LVM setup. Apart from that it was a standard install.
Test Firmware: Initial Release firmware
Works (maybe with a patch or fix)

Linux Hardware Diagnostic Software
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 8, 2008
Anyone out there know of a program I can install in Ubuntu (8.04) that will diagnose/troubleshoot hardware (Namely Hard Drive). I need to see if the drive has bad sectors, read it's smart status, etc. I need to check it's health in general. Any ideas?
Could there be a "Linux Hardware Configuration wiki"?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 1, 2005
It was something that occured to me a while ago, as a vague "Is this possible?" thought.
Essentially, it boils down to:
There's lots of guides on how to setup just about every piece of hardware going scattered around the Web
Getting a piece of hardware working tends to be a matter of having the right kernel options, software, and configuration files present
If you buy a new piece of hardware, it would be really helpful if you had one big, centralised database that could tell you exactly what changes to make to your kernel, what software you need to download, and what you might need to put into the config file(s)
(Pipe dream) If you could set this database up so software on the user's PC could detect new hardware, access the database, tell you what changes needed to be made, and maybe even make those changes all by itself, you could eliminate a lot of "hardware is so hard to install under Linux" whinges on fourms like this one. Especially if you could figure out
Linux Password Security
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 2, 2007
Ok so I read on digg.com today about a program called Ophcrack. The program cracks windows passwords and can be run from a SLAX live CD. I booted the cd on my computer and waited about five min. Then behold, it displayed my windows password. I was just wondering is there anything like this to crack Linux passwords? I don't know anything about Linux password security but how secure are the root and user passwords on Ubuntu? Can the passwords be found by rainbow tables like Ophcrack? I'm not trying to crack my Linux password I just want to know about the deterrents involved and how secure Linux passwords are vs Windows.

what is the most Linux Distribution that is most secure
against malware [bots in special];
i saw from a book cyber warefare:
linux total malware: 1898
freeBSD total malware: 43
Unix total malware: 212
windows total malware: 2247659
there is some kind of software sandbox of browser in linux?
