Reducing security risks from open source software

Novell has released NDS eDirectory for Linux, and NDS Corporate Edition for Linux - the latter allows the management of Linux users and groups, as well as standard NDS eDirectory functionality. NDS eDirectory licences are $2 each, while Corporate Edition licences are $26 per user. It is possible to integrate Unix, NetWare, Linux, Windows 2000 and Windows NT servers and clients in a single directory structure. Linux vendors expressing support include Bowstreet, Caldera, Evergreen, Red Hat, Sendmail, and TurboLinux. This comes at time when, according to Evans Marketing, Linux deployments increased up to 95 percent in the latter half of last year. It's apparently hot stuff for Caldera Systems: CEO Ransom Love poetically noted that "the adoption of Linux is like a prairie fire, and Novell just poured more gasoline on the blaze". Evergreen plans to use its Java e-Commerce to improve security and manageability, while Red Hat intends to use the capability to link Internet, intranet and extranet applications. TurboLinux was keen on the administrative and security features. It's a step forward for Linux, and in a sense a step back for Novell, since the company used to own Unix. ®
