New Version of EnGarde Secure Linux Released

EnGarde Linux Community: New release adds proactive hardware protection and security tools cited in 'Linux Firewalls'

ALLENDALE, N.J. -- Today, Guardian Digital, the world's premier provider of open source security solutions, is happy to announce the newest release of EnGarde Secure Linux: Community 3.0.18 (Version 3.0, Release 18), the world's first Open Source security platform.

The launch includes the introduction of Guardian Digital Health Center, the proactive approach towards monitoring your system hardware and also includes two completely new tools, FWKNOP and PSAD as covered in "Linux Firewalls" by Michael Rash:

  • FireWall KNock OPerator (FWKNOP) an authorization scheme called Single Packet Authorization (SPA).
  • PSAD: a collection of three lightweight system daemons that analyze iptables log messages to detect port scans and suspicious traffic.

If you had a chance to read "Linux Firewalls" and wanted to give them a try, EnGarde is the perfect platform to get your hands on these new tools for the best in secure servers.

In distribution since 2001, Guardian Digital's EnGarde has been a staple for security enthusiasts, administrators and organizations looking to administer servers easily and securely. Solely designed as an integrated server platform, EnGarde Secure Linux provides web, DNS and email functions simply and securely, while delivering integrated intrusion detection, advanced kernel and network security features, manageable SELinux policies, robust engineering and graphical auditing and reporting.

WebTool, EnGarde's online configuration tool, makes system configuration and maintenance nearly 'touch-free' and allows for instantaneous updating and patching through GDSN, the Guardian Digital Support Network.
