==Getting to know Gentoo Linux by Eduardo Tongson==

This will be an introduction to Gentoo Linux. Get to know the virtues
of this very powerful metadistro. Along with its package management system
portage we can see why it is the platform to provide a flexible base system

==SSH Tricks! by Mike Liguit==

rsh and rlogin, non­encrypted applications for remote shell logins,
like telnet, are now outdated and insecure to use. The SSH protocol suite,
however, is a network connectivity tool which encrypts all traffic 
passwords) to effectively eliminate eavesdropping, connection hijacking,
and other network ­level attacks. OpenSSH is the most common free version of
SSH and is virtually available on all Unix­-like operating systems. And
incidentally, OpenSSH provides not only secure remote logins, but loads of
tricks useful for squeezing the most power out of SSH!

Mike Liguit is currently the Chief Technical Officer of Cerberus
Technologies and Lead Technical Consultant for 8 Layer Technologies, Inc.,
companies which focuses mainly on network security and free and open source
software (FOSS). As a former board member of the Philippine Linux Users’
