"The company uses Fedora servers, the free, open source version of Red
Hat Linux, to run its production environment and Web presence. As a
precaution, Swanson uses the open source Mondo Archive tool to take
snapshots of its production server images, and keeps backup
configurations that can be brought online quickly in case of failures or
system problems."

"SE Linux has been terrific," Swanson said. In addition to vetting code
before deployment, SE Linux provides another level of assurance that the
code won't be exploited. "We deny everything and allow just what we
want" into and out of the servers via SE Linux policies, he said.
