Author: JT Smith

Federal Computer Week observes that while many U.S. government offices have adopted Linux, "...concerns about security have kept many agencies at bay, especially the Defense Department. Incidentally, the efforts of an agency famous for its suspicious nature may eventually help the rest of government put aside its fears. This spring, the National Security Agency released a prototype of a security-enhanced Linux system and released it to the public."
