Linux Security Week: March 7, 2022

Happy Monday fellow Linux geeks and Open Source enthusiasts! In this week's newsletter we explore the basics on Nmap, and how the popular open-source network discovery and auditing tool can be used to perform a ping scan, a host scan and an OS and services scan. We also demonstrate how Nmap can be used for firewall penetration testing to evaluate and improve the security of your network, and speak with Jon "maddog" Hall, often referred to as “the Godfather of Linux”, to get exclusive insights on his history with Linux, some of his contributions to the community, a bit about its evolution, and his thoughts on what we might see with Linux in the coming years.

Have a question about or a comment on one of this week's articles?  Let's discuss! Read on to get the details on these critical topics.

Yours in Open Source,
