Remastersys   http://www.geekconnection.org/remastersys/  

http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remastersys

This tool has a newbie-proof GUI and works on both Ubuntu and Debian distros and any of their derivatives.

Remastersys works by transferring the distro you’re running into an ISO image. You can choose to include your settings and personal data too, which makes it ideal for backups.

 

 

2. UCK http://uck.sourceforge.net/

The Ubuntu Customisation Kit – which is tastefully shortened to UCK – works with the ISO of any of the four Ubuntu flavours (the GNOME based original Ubuntu, KDE-based Kubuntu, Xfce-based Xubuntu and education-targeted Edubuntu) and lets you add or remove any apps to the stock.

This tool is ideal for advanced users because during the customisation process it places you in a chrooted environment of the Live CD, enabling you to tweak any aspect of the distro.

 

5. SUSE Studio http://susestudio.com/

Novell’s SUSE Studio is taking the world by storm. It lets you select packages, set various configurations (including network detection, firewall settings and so on) and select a logo, background and more.

The most impressive part is that all this functionality is accessed from within a browser. You can even test-drive your new distro – again from within the browser – before downloading the ISO image to share with the world.

 

7. Builder  http://www.gnewsense.org/Main/HomePage

Builder is a series of bash scripts that are used by the gNewSense developers to create their distro. Along with the tool they’ve also written a handy nine-step guide to creating a customised distro from Ubuntu Hardy. The guide is available on their site.

GNU/Linux 10 razones por que los chicos deben usarlo – Taringa!

10 razones por que los chicos deben usar GNU/Linux


1: Virus/malware

Esta razón, está siempre en la parte superior de mi lista. Todos nosotros, sabemos que los niños son propensos a la apertura, y a realizar las cosas que no deberían. Motivado, a que no se puede chequear a sus hijos el 100 por ciento del tiempo, no se puede saber donde están obteniendo las aplicaciones o archivos adjuntos. Puede asegurarse, que esas máquinas tienen antivirus y anti software espía, pero ¿por qué incluso toman la oportunidad?, cuando sus hijos están utilizando el sistema operativo Linux, esta preocupación desaparece.

2: Seguridad

Esto puede resumirse fácilmente. Si usted, no da a sus niños la contraseña de root, no puede ejecutar con privilegios de administrador del root. Por supuesto, cuando se utiliza una distribución como Ubuntu. Para cualquier sistema operativo basado en la sudo, necesitará editar el archivo/etc./sudoers para dar a los usuarios jóvenes los privilegios que necesitan.

3: Eficacia de costos

Supongamos, que tiene un usuario más joven, que está recibiendo una máquina hand-me-down, que necesita un sistema operativo a instalar. Si no tienes esa copia de Windows alrededor, está sujeto a adquirir una copia nueva. Esto también puede aplicarse a cualquier número de aplicaciones, puede que tenga que pagar. Para evitar estos costos, en total entrega a ese niño la misma máquina que ejecute Linux. No tendrás que pagar por la licencia del sistema operativo, o cualquier aplicación que los niños podrían necesitar, o quieran. Encima de eso, tendrán la herramienta agregar, o quitar programas, donde pueden buscar y encontrar sólo lo que necesita. También, puede ejecutar una distribución moderna en mucho menos hardware que necesitará, para la vista o Windows 7.

4: Herramientas específicas de la edad

¿Debe saber que hay grupos de distribuciones y software diseñados específicamente para los adultos jóvenes y los niños? Ha suavidadorientada para k-6,edubuntu,para las edades 3-18,linuxkidx, para las edades de 2-15,prospectiva kids, para las edades de 3-12 y muchos otros. Estas herramientas específicas por edad están bien adaptadas para el grupo de que su objetivo con gráficos, y lenguaje ajustados para el rango de edad. Y algunas de las distribuciones orientadas específicamente para jóvenes, bloqueado para niños desde el sistema operativo.

5: Portailes(laptop, netbook)

Los niños tienen pequeñas manos, y dedos que pueden manejar un teclado reducido, y fácilmente pueden sentarse con una máquina de pequeña en su regazo. Yel sistema operativo Linux, es ideal para ejecutar en netbooks. Puede instalar un sistema operativo auténtico, o un sistema operativo específico de netbook, junto con cualquier software que necesite en el netbook, convirtiéndolo en una excelente elección para el público más joven.

6: Los estudiantes ágiles

Si colocas una máquina basada en Linux, delante de un usuario joven, no escuchará las quejas como, «¿por qué no se ejecuta quicken!» o «necesito mi app de nómina personalizada para ejecutar en esto!». La mayoría de los niños, dominaran el sistema operativo Linux rápidamente (y también), con una curva de aprendizaje mínima. Mentes jóvenes, se adaptan bien, a sus hijos, no tendrán ningún problema para adaptarse a las diferencias. Usted podría probablemente sentarse, con un niño, bajar de gentoo (software), ejecutando cde (software) o afterstep (software), y él o ella, habría menos tiempo para explicarle el significado de Linux.

7: Permanecer en el paso

Sé que esto traerá la molestia, en muchos lectores. No estoy diciendo que cualquier sistema operativo, se utilizará más que cualquier otro. Pero Linux, es utilizado en todo el mundo. Muchos países, en su conjunto han adoptado Linux. El futuro de Linux, es muy brillante, y parece estar obteniendo más brillo. Así que, ¿por qué no dar a sus niños una ventaja sobre lo que posiblemente podría ser el futuro de la PC? Si Windows es tan amigable para el usuario, niños, pasando la mayor parte de su tiempo en Linux, no deberían tener ningún problema de trabajar con Windows. De hecho, yo diría que aumentaría la capacidad del niño, para entender completamente el sistema operativo, y cómo realmente funciona el PC.

8: Oportunidades de aprendizaje

Open source, potencian la educación. Prácticamente grita, «me abres y aprendes!» ¿Qué mejor manera de ayudar a los jóvenes a aprender que, dándoles la posibilidad de hacer eso? con los niños realmente curiosos, es extraordinario el deseo de aprender, así que, ¿por qué bloquearlos con el software de código cerrado? cuando un niño está expuesto a abrir el software de fuente y un sistema operativo de código abierto, las oportunidades educativas, son ilimitadas.

9: Una lección en la comunidad

Esto puede parecer un tramo, pero soy un idealista, así que espero que vayan a ir con él. Enseñar a los niños, el valor del software de código abierto, les ayudará a entender las comunidades. Aunque los usuarios jóvenes, probablemente no abran el código fuente de las aplicaciones, que se están utilizando, la constante evolución de hoy en día, impulsado por la comunidad mundial, que necesitan todas las ventajas que pueden llegar a medida que crecen. Tener una sólida comprensión de código abierto, les ayudará a entender, a una edad temprana, lo que significa realmente trabajar con y para un equipo. Usando Linux, a una temprana edad, también indirectamente enseña a los niños el beneficio del voluntariado, algo que muchos de nosotros necesitamos para obtener más información sobre el tema.

10: Filtrado de contenidos

Linux, tiene numerosas maneras de manejar el filtrado de contenidos para los usuarios jóvenes. Dedansguardian (software)asquidguard (software), para la edición manual del archivo /etc/hosts, puede filtrar contenido en Linux, con mucho más detalle, que puede en Windows, y fácilmente. Agregando, a esto la capacidad de bloquear, lo que el usuario joven pueda, y no pueda acceder (sin tener que agregar software de terceros), y Linux rápidamente se convierte en un entorno informático seguro para su niño.

Las 11 mejores aplicaciones de hacking y seguridad para Linux | CyberHades

 

 

1. John the Ripper: herramienta para cracking de contraseñas. Es una de las más conocidas y populares (también tiene versión Windows). Además de autodetectar el hash de las contraseñas, puedes configurarlo como quieras. Lo puedes usar en contraseñas encriptadas para Unix (DES, MD5 ó Blowfish), Kerberos AFS y Windows. Tiene módulos adicionales para incluir hashes de contraseñas badadas en MD4 y almacenadas en LDAP, MySQL y otros.

2. Nmap: ¿quién no conoce Nmap?, sin duda el mejor programa para se seguridad para redes. Puedes usarlo para encontrar ordenadores y servicios en una red. Se usa sobre todo para escanear puertos, pero esta es sólo una de sus posibilidades. También es capaz de descubrir servicios pasivos en una red así como dar detalles de los ordenadores descubiertos (sistema operativo, tiempo que lleva conectado, software utilizado para ejecutar un servicio, presencia de un firewall ó incluso la marca de la tarjeta de red remota). Funciona en Windows y Mac OS X también. Tutorial Nmap.

3. Nessus: herramienta para encontrar y analizar vulnerabilidades de software, como aquellas que puedan ser utilizadas para controlar o acceder a los datos del equipo remoto. También localiza passwords por defecto, parches no instalados, etc.

4. chkrootkit: básicamente es un shell script para permitir descubrir rootkits instalados en nuestro sistema. El problema es que muchos rootkits actuales detectan la presencia de programas como este para no ser detectados.

5. Wireshark: sniffer de paquetes, se utiliza para analizar el tráfico de red. Es parecido a tcpdump (luego hablamos de él) pero con una GUI y más opciones de ordenación y filtro. Coloca la tarjeta en modo promiscuo para poder analizar todo el tráfico de la red. También está para Windows.

6. netcat: herramienta que permite abrir puertos TCP/UDP en un equipo remoto (después se queda a la escucha) , asociar una shell a ese puerto y forzar conexiones UDP/TCP (útil para rasteo de puertos o transferecias bit a bit entre dos equipos).

7. Kismet: sistema de detección de redes, sniffer de paquetes y de intrusión para redes inalámbricas 802.11.

8. hping: generador y analizador de paquetes para el protocolo TCP/IP. En las últimas versiones se pueden usar scripts basados en el lenguaje Tcl y también implementa un motor de strings (cadenas de texto) para describir los paquetes TCP/IP, de esta manera es más fácil de entenderlos además de poder manipularlos de una manera bastante fácil.

9. Snort: es un NIPS: Network Prevention System y un NIDS: Network Intrusion Detetection, capaz de analizar redes IP. Se usa sobre todo para detectar ataques como buffer overflows, acceso a puertos abiertos, ataques web, etc.

10. tcpdump: herramienta de debugging que se ejecuta desde la línea de comandos. Permite ver los paquetes TCP/IP (y otros) que se están transmitiendo o recibiendo desde el ordenador.

11. Metasploit: esta herramienta que nos proporciona información sobre vulnerabilidades de seguridad y permite hacer pruebas de penetración contra sistemas remotos. Tiene también un framework para realizar tus propias herramientas y está tanto para Linux como para Windows. Existen muchos tutoriales por la red donde explican cómo utilizarlo.

Sistema dual Windows – Ubuntu Linux

El tinglado » Sistema dual Windows – Ubuntu Linux

sistema dual Es cada vez más frecuente la instalación conjunta de Windows y Linux en ordenadores duales, es decir, con posibilidad de funcionar bajo uno u otro sistema operativo e independientemente uno de otro. Cualquier CD live instalador de Linux hace instalaciones de este tipo si elegimos la opción de instalación automática, pero el control del equipo queda entonces bajo Linux. Aquí vamos a tutelar la instalación dual Windows-Linux de forma manual lo cual nos dará mayor control tanto del proceso de instalación como del de desinstalación según queramos una u otra cosa.

NEO: No me gusta la idea de no ser yo el que controle mi vida.

MORFEO: Sé exactamente a lo que te refieres. Te explicaré por qué estás aquí. Estás porque sabes algo. Aunque lo que sabes no lo puedes explicar. Pero lo percibes. Ha sido así durante toda tu vida. Algo no funciona en el mundo. No sabes lo que es, pero ahí está, como una astilla clavada en tu mente y te está enloqueciendo. Esa sensación te ha traído hasta mí. ¿Sabes de lo que estoy hablando?

NEO: ¿De Matrix?

MORFEO: ¿Te gustaría saber lo que es? Matrix nos rodea. Está por todas partes, incluso ahora, en esta misma habitación. Puedes verla si miras por la ventana, o al encender la televisión. Puedes sentirla, cuando vas a trabajar, cuando vas a la iglesia, cuando pagas tus impuestos. Es el mundo que ha sido puesto ante tus ojos para ocultarte la verdad.

NEO: ¿Qué verdad?

MORFEO: Que eres un esclavo, Neo. Igual que los demás, naciste en cautiverio, naciste en una prisión que no puedes ni oler ni saborear ni tocar. Una prisión para tu mente. Por desgracia no se puede explicar lo que es Matrix. Has de verla con tus propios ojos. Esta es tu última oportunidad. Después, ya no podrás echarte atrás. Si tomas la pastilla azul fin de la historia. Despertarás en tu cama y creerás lo que quieras creerte. Si tomas la roja, te quedas en el País de las Maravillas y yo te enseñaré hasta dónde llega la madriguera de conejos. Recuerda, lo único que te ofrezco es la verdad. Nada más.

Habla Mark Shuttleworth, el señor Ubuntu – lanacion.com

Al igual que con otras distribuciones es posible probar Ubuntu sin modificar la instalación de Windows de la PC y sin pagar un centavo. En www.ubuntu.com está disponible para descargar la versión 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex). Hay que bajar un único archivo de 700 MB de tamaño, de extensión ISO, que deberá grabarse en un CD como imagen de disco . Si su software de grabación de CD no lo admite, puede probar con los freeware DeepBurner ( www.deepburner.com ) o CDBurnerXP ( www.cdburnerxp.se ). Si el disco se grabó correctamente, al insertarlo en la PC debe mostrar varios archivos y carpetas, no un único archivo ISO.

Luego se debe reiniciar la PC dejando el CD en la compactera. Si la PC lee primero la lectora de CD antes que el disco rígido, aparecerá (antes de que se cargue Windows) una pantalla que nos da la opción de ejecutar Ubuntu en modo LiveCD ; esto nos permite usar Linux sin modificar nuestro disco rígido. También puede hacerse con una llave USB, pero es más complicado.

La otra opción que ofrece Ubuntu es Wubi , una herramienta que funciona dentro de Windows y que debería autoejecutarse al insertar el CD en la PC; permite instalar Ubuntu en el disco, pero sin crear nuevas particiones ni afectar a Windows. Sólo pedirá que elijamos un nombre de usuario, una contraseña y una cierta cantidad de gigabytes libres del disco para comenzar; luego copiará unos archivos al disco, y listo.

Al reiniciar, un menú nos permitirá elegir entre Windows o Ubuntu. Al seleccionar esta última opción, la primera vez aparecerá un cartel que dice formateando el disco, pero no hay que entrar en pánico; está usando un archivo dentro de Windows como si fuera todo un disco rígido. Después de unos minutos tendremos ante nosotros el Escritorio de Ubuntu, listo para usar. Si no queremos seguir usándolo, podemos desinstalar todo desde el Panel de Control de Windows, como si fuera una aplicación más.

Ese esfuerzo para simplificar la instalación a los neófitos es una de las bases de Ubuntu (su lema es Linux para humanos ), y una de las misiones que se impuso Mark Shuttleworth, su creador. De origen sudafricano, Shuttleworth hizo una fortuna con la venta de su empresa de seguridad informática Thawte a VeriSign, en 1999, por US$ 575 millones. Gracias a esa venta viajó al espacio como turista, en 2002 (pagó US$ 20 millones).

«El viaje combinó mucha filosofía con un terror visceral, sobre todo en el despegue y el aterrizaje -dice en una entrevista telefónica con LA NACION-. Fuera de la Tierra tomás distancia de la historia, el color y la textura de tu vida, tu genealogía, tu cultura. Y a la vez notás lo cercanos que están los países, lo interdependientes que son. Es una sensación muy poderosa.»

Con su fortuna también fundó Canonical, empresa madre de Ubuntu. Todavía no es rentable: al ofrecer su producto gratis, depende de ventas en soporte y servicios de valor agregado para sobrevivir. «Aunque Canonical tiene una facturación anual de varios millones de dólares, no tenemos todavía grandes clientes que preinstalen nuestro sistema operativo en sus servidores, como sí lo hacen con Red Hat, SuSe o Windows. Pero hay otros negocios que sí dan dinero», afirma. La compañía trabaja con integradores desarrollando una versión de Ubuntu para netbooks; además, su sistema operativo se ofrece en computadoras Dell. Esto, al igual que la inclusión de Linux en notebooks ultraportátiles, le ha dado mayor visibilidad a este sistema operativo.

«No creo que la gente común vaya a buscar Linux en forma activa para reemplazar su Windows -admite-. Para ser deseable en una categoría ya establecida, tenés que ser diez veces mejor que el resto. Y es difícil argumentar que Linux lo sea. Además hay que entender que los usuarios están cambiando la manera en que piensan a su computadora. La ven más que nada como un punto de acceso a la Web. En ese sentido, Linux tiene muchísimo para ofrecer como plataforma para la Web y otros servicios en línea.»

Live Booteble CDs

[1] Absolute Linux
Posted by admin @ 04/Apr/2008

Absolute is a desktop-oriented Slackware — lightweight but stable. Secure, in that only root user can install software and configure the system. Basically an IT or system-builder’s friend in that it can run nicely on old hardware. Very easy for users to get things done because of the software selection and utilities and documentation — yet difficult for them to mess things up.

It is roughly 45 megabytes. The name is because it’s like being supplied with an empty crust and being allowed to build your own custom pizza upon it (the reason for the pizza reference is due to its creator’s «slight» insanity.)

Pingwinek GNU/Haiku 0.1.0 is probably the first Haiku distribution. Beside the base Haiku system, it contains 40 packages ported from Pingwinek GNU/Linux distribution. It contains compiler (GCC 2.95.3), several simple games, SDL, Midnight Commander, ncurses. I’ve prepared several screenshots of the distribution working on a real hardware. The distribution can be downloaded in a three ways: QEMU image, VMWare image and LiveCD. The LiveCD boots slowly but the games work much better then running under QEMU or VMWare. The LiveCD contains a read only filesystem which could cause some problems.

Live View is a Java-based graphical forensics tool that creates a VMware virtual machine out of a raw (dd-style) disk image or physical disk. This allows the forensic examiner to «boot up» the image or disk and gain an interactive, user-level perspective of the environment, all without modifying the underlying image or disk. Because all changes made to the disk are written to a separate file, the examiner can instantly revert all of his or her changes back to the original pristine state of the disk. The end result is that one need not create extra «throw away» copies of the disk or image to create the virtual machine.
