How To Set Up A Web-Based Enterprise Password Manager Protected By Two-Factor Authentication While it is great that more services such as Facebook and Google are offering two-factor authentication, there are still plenty of services that do not. What is the next best thing? Using a password manager and incredibly complex passwords. A password manager allows you to use different passwords at all the sites and services you visit, but it creates a 'keys-to-the-kingdom' problem. This tutorial will show you how to install the WebKeePass open-source web-based, enterprise password manager and how to protect it with two-factor authentication from WiKID Systems. Note that we have not evaluated the security of WebKeePass - this would certainly be worthwhile. Our primary selection criteria were: open-source, multi-user and allowed for external authentication, in this case via LDAP. Another option that looked promising was CorporateVault.

Ubuntu 10.10 LAN Torrent Seedbox With Avalanche-rt, Lighttpd, Rtorrent, Vsftpd And Samba This tutorial is based on a LAN setup, but it should also be applicable for an Internet seedbox (e.g. on a vps or rootds), but some additional steps may need to be performed (firewall, securing rpc-mount, generally hardening of the server). The best lightweight software combination for a seedbox is lighttpd with rtorrent/libtorrent and a nifty web interface. So we use avalanche-rt, an actively developed project which looks very promising.

Send Instant Messages (Notifies) By XMPP (Jabber/Google Talk) From Linux Command Line sendxmpp is a perl-script to send xmpp (jabber), similar to what mail does for mail. Obviously, to use sendxmpp , you need a jabber account; they are freely available at jabber.org, but you can also run your own server. The good news is, instant messaging between the Google Talk servers and its clients uses an open protocol, XMPP, allowing users of other XMPP/Jabber clients to communicate with Google Talk users. This tutorial shows how you can compile and install SendXMPP on CentOS 5.5 server.
