The importance of entropy often goes ignored, especially as you look at the cost of devices that provide entropy. A nice alternative to these is the OneRNG, previously on KickStarter and hopefully soon to be available for general purchase.
I currently have the OneRNG connected to a KVM host, however I plan to move it to something else (perhaps a Raspberry Pi 2 or NUC), using Pollen and Pollinate to provide entropy to my internal hosts – perhaps with a few more OneRNGs thrown in for good measure.
You can read more about why entropy is important and how Pollen / Pollinate work here. You can also see the talk given by Jim Cheetham and Paul Campbell at Linux Conf 2015 on the OneRNG below:
I never thought I would find a reason not to broadcast an SSID for a wireless network, alas I have.
Fortinet provide a number of Wireless devices designed for remote deployment (in particular the FAP-11C, FAP-14C and FAP-28C), these devices connect back to your Wireless Controller via a remote network such as one you would use in a hotel. The devices are intended for travelling and remote staff to use your corporate network as if they were in the office.
A handy feature of these devices is that they include multiple LAN ports (1, 4 and 8 respectively), which are particularly handy for VoIP phones and other network devices that you would rather not have on WiFi.
Unfortunately, Fortinet’s software currently only allows you to have these ports:
To get around this and prevent malicious users from connecting to what should be an internal network: Note – this section assumes your SSID / Network name is A_LAN_Network.
Pictured above is the FortiAP Profile options for a FAP-11C. It should be noted that the FAP-14C puts all 4 LAN ports on the single selected option whereas the FAP-28C allows all 8 LAN ports to be placed on different SSIDs / Networks.
