First Look at the Renewed CTL High Availability Implementation in FreeBSD

Dear Readers,

Christmas time is fast approaching, so we all need to get busy with shopping. If you are looking for a perfect gift for your techy friend, we would like to suggest our new online course, DevOps with Chef on FreeBSD. This training course imparts knowledge on the tools, best practices, and skills to automate your FreeBSD servers. Our training is loaded with practical, real-world tools and techniques. Upon completion, the experience will enable you to implement DevOps in your IT projects almost immediately.

As Benjamin Franklin once said, “an investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” In that spirit, we are happy to deliver another repository of knowledge this month, starting with another great article, “First Look at the Renewed CTL High Availability Implementation in FreeBSD” by Mikhail Zakharov. Also in the FreeBSD Corner, Abdelhadi Khiati will explain how to “Create Your First FreeBSD Kernel Module.” This article will server as an introduction to an article by Abdelhadi which will be innext month’s issue.

Moving on to the security section, Brian Spector, CEO of MIRACL, shared great information with us through his insightful article about “Securing the Future of the Web”.

Bhyve has been the most requested topic from prospective students. Abdorrahman Homaei has put together a great piece on the subject, “bhyve: Introduction to Hypervisors.” We hope you enjoy it!

Next, we‘’ post an article about, “How to Install Odoo ERP Software on Ubuntu 16.04,” by Moustafa Nabil El-Zeny. We know it’s not about BSD, but we hope you will enjoy the tutorial regardless. It’s an amazing, in-depth piece about Odoo which has never been covered by BSD Mag.

In case you didn’t make it for MeetBSD held at U.C. Berkeley in California,  Michael Dexter shared his “MeetBSD 2016 Report”. In a nutshell, it was a wonderful feeling to be a part of the event.

Finally, you will find Rob’s Column. This time he is sharing information about cyber fraud in the banking industry.

We hope you will enjoy the issue as we approach the cold days of winter(at least in some parts of the world). Here, in Denmark, we had snow at the beginning of November, which was very unusual. Winter and short cold days are coming, thus, we would like to encourage you to once again take a look at our new online course by clicking here >>

Rest assured, the course will be a perfect filling for the long evenings.

This enhancement looks extremely important for the BeaST storage system, as implementation of high available native ALUA in FreeBSD can potentially replace the BeaST arbitration mechanism (“Arbitrator”), which is completely described in the papers on the BeaST project page.

Create Your First FreeBSD Kernel Module       

by Abdelhadi Khiati

Security on the Internet is long overdue for change. Whether it’s by script kiddies or state actors, the Internet has shown that it can be attacked in a myriad of new and inventive ways. This poses huge risks to the future of our digital economy: nearly five billion private data records have been exposed globally since 2013, and barely a week goes by without a new data breach or vulnerability being revealed.

A hypervisor or virtual machine monitor (VMM) is a computer software, firmware or hardware that creates and runs virtual machines. Actually, the power of VMM depends on the kernel model of the operating system. In general, there are three types of kernel model, microkernel, monolithic and hybrid. Here are pros and cons to each type.

Odoo is a web-based Open Source enterprise resource planning and customer relationship software that helps to organize and grow your business. Odoo was formerly known as OpenERP and, before that, TinyERP. There are many apps available to extend Odoo, for example: billing, accounting, manufacturing, purchasing, warehouse management, and project Management.

Over the weekend, Tesco Bank suspended online transactions after an attacker gained access to over 20,000 accounts, with money being withdrawn fraudulently in some cases. In another security incident, the City of El Paso was the victim of CEO fraud worth over $3.2 million. What implications does this paradigm shift towards online crime have for us as a society?

Now I’m a Linux-user, but because of some security issues of Linux I plan to change to other one on my computer. Of course, only other Unix-like, but more secure operating systems (like BSD) with secure FS (BTRFS, ZFS) are the targets of my interesting. So I would like to try BSD on my home PC, and if I have some advantages of using BSD over Linux I would try to use it on the computer of my little family firm. If I can use it with success I shall donate your site. Thank you for all of the downloaded… Read more »
