4.10.9 Hand-made user auditing
If you are paranoid you might want to add a system-wide /etc/profile
that sets the environment in a way such that they cannot remove audit
capabilities from the shell (commands are dumped to $HISTFILE. The
/etc/profile could be set as follows:
HISTFILE=~/.bash_history HISTSIZE=100000000000000000 HISTFILESIZE=10000000000000000 readonly HISTFILE readonly HISTSIZE readonly HISTFILESIZE export HISTFILE HISTSIZE HISTFILESIZE
Last night, I had dinner with William Yu,
Miguel Paraz, and
Jijo Sevilla. Jijo organized the
While waiting for Migs and William, Jijo and I chatted about his new
IT consultancy. He described the fat client Debian-based system he had
in mind, with computers automatically drawing updated packages from a
central repository. Jijo wanted to know what I thought of the project.
I told him to check out FAI, a Debian package for doing
fully-automated installs. I also told him about configure packages to
help propagate configurations. He could set up a network-booting
system, with CD backups in case the network went down. He was
delighted – these tidbits would make his job a whole lot easier.
He asked me because he knew I watched the debian-user list and so
might know of similar problems and solutions.
Here’s how I keep an idea of all Debian packages in my head:
- I spent some time reading the package summaries of all the packages
available in Debian’s unstable+experimental archives. This was part
of choosing new packages to install, so it was fun.
- I use aptitude’s “forget” command to mark all of those packages as old.
- Whenever I update my package lists, aptitude marks packages I
haven’t seen as “new.”
- I review those and then use “forget” again to mark all of them as old.
That’s how I keep track of all existing packages available for i386. I
still use apt-cache search and aptitude’s search functions
extensively, but at least I know what to look for.
I also watch debian-devel for Intent to Package (ITP) announcements. I
used to keep track of freshmeat.net, but found it too far from my
normal workload, and not useful enough.
Looks like that’s my Geek Power – I’m a search engine. ;)
