    Security Team

    Seeing how we have two teams on Ubuntu Forums for helping out with the Absolute Beginner Talk and the Unanswered Posts, I was wondering if we could have a Security Team to be a dedicated group of security minded users to help out with the Security Discussions.

    Please post your thoughts on this, as to if this is a good idea or not.

    That would be a pretty good idea. Security is a "specialty" and a group devoted to it would make sense IMO.

    I should clarify, Admins would make the decision (the Forum Council, actually). I am just a moderator.

    Re: Security Team

    I think this is also a great idea being that security is one of the main selling points for linux!

    Mod == Cthulhu

    I need some translation help (decryption since we are talking security) for the above!

    And of course, I would be very willing to help out the team, if it does become approved. (Not sure if I stated that or not..)

    Yeah LaRoza, what is that cryptic text?
    Edit... Opps.

    Re: Security Team

    I don't think a security team would be a bad idea

    Especially because some beginners just use Linux to set up a cheap home server

    Re: Security Team

    Thanks for the suggestion Dr Small

    I think the idea has merit.

    FYI: There are a few ongoing activities at this time :

    First security has been split from servers : http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=322

    Second there is an IRC : #ubuntu-hardened

    And on Launchpad :

    https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-hardened

    So we might want to start by directing interested folks to the ubuntu-hardened team & seeing what grows from there
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.

    Seems to me like a war preparation...
    Hehe, I don't know if I can contribute anything, but I'd like to participate.
