Linux Voice

Article from Issue 202/2017

This month in Linux Voice.

Understanding modern Linux systems is both difficult and important. If you're working in technology, sooner or later, you'll hit a "weird" bug: the sort of problem that seems to come out of nowhere and, by all rational thought, shouldn't exist, yet somehow does and tends to be caused by something deep within the internals of the system. Personally, I take quite a perverse pleasure in these problems because they really push your skills and understanding.

When facing these problems, your key weapons are almost always old-school, low-level tools for probing the system. This month, both Valentine Sinitsyn and Mike Saunders take a look at some of these tools. In Core Tech, Valentine investigates nmap which is, in my opinion, the best network analysis tool. Mike, meanwhile, pokes the very fabric of executable files themselves. These are the sorts of skills you need to master if you really want to become a Linux expert.
