Announcing the Linux Foundation Certification Program for Systems Administrators
Combined with increased Linux training offerings and a free ‘Introduction to Linux’ Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) introduced earlier this year, The Linux Foundation Certification Program will help expand the talent pool of Linux professionals worldwide. Key features include:
  • Virtual: The Linux Foundation has designed a secure, performance-based exam that can be taken with a web browser, microphone, Internet connection and web cam at anytime, from anywhere in the world.
  • Performance-based: Exam takers will be tested on their ability to solve real problems in the command line rather than be tested on theory or be given multiple choice questions.
  • Distribution-flexible: The Linux ecosystem is defined by choice, so exam takers will be able to choose to take their tests with one of three Linux distributions: CentOS, openSUSE or Ubuntu.

For more information on the new program, see Jim Zemlin’s blog http://go.linuxfoundation.org/e/6342/wth-demands-bigger-talent-pool/ygmcj/563691803

OpenStack is the most popular open source cloud project, followed by Docker and KVM, according to a survey of more than 550 respondents conducted by Linux.com and The New Stack and announced at CloudOpen in Chicago. The survey, conducted over a two-week period in July, asked respondents to choose the best open source cloud project overall as well as in five different categories.

Linux Kernel Git Repositories Add 2-Factor Authentication
 
In a blog post last month, Linux Foundation system administrator Konstantin Ryabitsev announced new security features for Linux kernel developers: “For a few years now we have been mandating a fairly strict authentication policy for those developers who commit directly to the git repositories housing the Linux kernel. Each is issued their own ssh private key, which then becomes the sole way for them to push code changes to the git repositories hosted atkernel.org. While using ssh keys is much more secure than just passwords, there are still a number of ways for ssh private keys to fall into malicious hands. We wanted to further tighten our access requirements, but without causing undue difficulties for the kernel developers.”
