New Internet Routing Method Allows Users to Avoid Sending Data Through Undesired Geographic Regions Censorship is one of the greatest threats to open communication on the Internet. Information may be censored by a user’s country of residence or the information’s desired destination. But recent studies show that censorship by countries through which the data travels along its route is also a danger. Now, computer scientists at the University of Maryland have developed a method for providing concrete proof to Internet users that their information did not cross through certain geographic areas. The new system offers advantages over existing systems: it is immediately deployable and does not require knowledge of—or modifications to—the Internet’s routing hardware or policies. This new system, called Alibi Routing, will be presented on August 20, 2015, at the Association for Computing Machinery Special Interest Group on Data Communication (ACM SIGCOMM) conference in London.

Using Free Windows XP Mode as a VMware Virtual Machine It’s becoming hard to obtain a licensed copy of Windows XP. Yet, many IT professionals, including malware analysts, like having Windows XP in their virtualized labs. After all, Windows XP is still running on numerous personal and business systems. Fortunately, you can download a virtualized instance of Windows XP from Microsoft for free if you are running Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate on your base system.

VMware Virtualization Fundamentals – VMware Server and VMware ESXi by Ramesh Natarajan on June 2, 2010 We are starting a new series of articles on VMware that will help you install, configure and maintain VMware environments. In this first part of the VMware series, let us discuss the fundamental concepts of virtualization and review the VMware virtualization implementation options. Following are few reasons why you might want to think about virtualization for your environment. Run multiple operation systems on one server. A (Terrifying) Traffic Analysis Of Windows 10 Note: Some readers have commented that the original source for the article is of questionably validity. If anyone can confirm or refute the original author's finding with actual data, please let me know in the comments, and I'll update this post accordingly. Some Czech guy did a traffic analysis of data produced by Windows 10, and released his findings the other day. His primary thesis was that Windows 10 acts more like a terminal than an operating system -- because of the extent of the "cloud" integration, a large portion of the OS functions are almost dependent on remote (Microsoft's) servers. The amount of collected information, even with strict privacy settings, is quite alarming.

Understanding Network Requirements and Configuration This chapter describes the network requirements for the Exalogic machine. It contains the following topics: 6.1 Overview of Network Requirements How to Use VMM to Convert VMware Virtual Machines to Hyper-V (V2V) Applies To: System Center 2012 SP1 - Virtual Machine Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager, System Center 2012 - Virtual Machine Manager You can use the following procedure to convert a VMware virtual machine to a Hyper-V virtual machine through the virtual-to-virtual (V2V) machine conversion process in Virtual Machine Manager (VMM). The source virtual machine can be stored in the VMM library or managed by a VMware ESX host. Before you begin Before you begin, there are several things you need to be aware of concerning V2V conversions:

Beginner Geek: How to Create and Use Virtual Machines Virtual machines allow you to run an operating system in a window on your desktop. Use them to run software made for other operating systems, experiment with different operating systems, and sandbox software. There are several good free virtual machine programs, so setting up a virtual machine is easy.

How to Install Linux on a Windows Machine With UEFI Secure Boot There is one sure-fire way to get around the UEFI secure boot issue when installing Linux, and that is to simply disable certain components within your BIOS, including Quickboot/Fastboot; Intel Smart Response Technology (ISRT); and FastStartUp (if you have Windows 8). When Windows 8 rolled up to the curb, Microsoft did its best to enforce a protocol known as Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) Secure Boot. This was to be a modern replacement for the aging BIOS system and would help ensure boot-time malware couldn’t be injected into a system. Determining Your Networking Requirements > Introduction to Cisco Network Design Designing a network can be a challenging task. Your first step is to understand your networking requirements. The rest of this chapter explains how to determine these requirements. After you have identified these requirements, refer to Chapter 2 for information on selecting network capability and reliability options that meet these requirements. Networking devices must reflect the goals, characteristics, and policies of the organizations in which they operate. Two primary goals drive networking design and implementation:

Setting Up a New Virtual Machine Features | Documentation | Knowledge Base | Discussion Forums Prev Contents Last Next The New Virtual Machine Wizard guides you through the key steps for setting up a new virtual machine, helping you set various options and parameters.
