A new HOWTO at the OSADL Website: Lessons to be learned from Stuxnet

By: Carsten Emde

OSADL's safety coordinator Nicholas Mc Guire on security aspects of using Linux in the industry - not only for the paranoid!

Thanks to OSADL's safety coordinator Nicholas Mc Guire, our HOWTO collection now contains an article on security aspects of using the Linux kernel in industrial projects.

Nicholas in concluding his contribution by saying: "This all might sound a bit paranoid - but security of industrial Open Source software starts at establishing trustworthy sources from the very outset - adding this small effort will not provide 100% security but, nevertheless, a clear increase." If you, thus, would like to learn a bit more about the procedure of verifying the origin of the Linux kernel - have a look at this newly available HOWTO.
