Use Dual-Key Authentication for Special Accounts

A question about the risk of being able to login as root either remotely or limited to the (virtual) console came up on a discussion group in LinkedIn recently. Ideally, there is no need to ever login as root (the big question or risk being: who is root today). Instead, users should be logging as as themselves and then using a mechanism to switchuser (su, sudo, super, etc.) to root.

The Value of Hardware Maintenance

Recently, a customer was looking for help with their machine, a 7038-6M2 running AIX 5.1.

The customer attempted to call IBM for assistance. They didn't get very far at first. This machine was announced in 2002 and withdrawn from marketing in 2005. In addition, IBM no longer supports AIX 5.1 or any previous operating system.
