Linux Magazine: Ubuntu Encrypted Home
October 22, 2009
Frustrated with the piece, I blogged this in return: Your Article is Incorrect: Linux Magazine.
Following that post, I had a very constructive, private email conversation with Linux Magazine editor, Bryan Richard. We discussed a number of different ways that Canonical/Ubuntu might be able to respond to their previous article, which caused quite a stir on Ubuntu’s public mailing lists.
I’m very pleased with Bryan’s response. He invited me to author an article focusing on the security features that are available in Ubuntu. The result was published earlier today, focusing on Ubuntu’s Encrypted Home Directory feature, which is rather unique among Linux distributions: Ubuntu’s Encrypted Home Directory: A Canonical Approach to Data Privacy
