Yay, I got a free LWE exhibition pass from the nice people
at Walnut Creek/BSDi in the mail. At first they had messed
up my address, but I could catch this and even though they
said it would take 3-5 days to ship to me, it arrived in
mail yesterday. This is just cool.
Too bad I have to sit in meetings today and tomorrow morning, so I can only go tomorrow afternoon.
Went to BALUG meeting yesterday evening. Gene Kim, co-
author of the tripwire utility and CTO of Tripwire Inc,
spoke about security and what Tripwire can do about it. I
was a bit dissapointed with the talk, not technical enough,
too much about why we should care about computer security
and not about how we should care about it. From the talk I
didn't even get the info that tripwire is going to be
GPLed, I learned about that later.
Going out afterwards for a drink with Gene Kim, another security consultant and two nice visitors from Taiwan, was really nice, though.
nymia: What are you talking about? There has never been a real DOS shell in Windows NT, and so there is none in Win2k. If you want a real DOS, you have to install a real DOS, and do dual boot. The "Command Prompt" tool has always been a native Win32 console application and although I haven't seen a Win2k system yet, I'm pretty sure it is still there.
