Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.6 launched yesterday with improved security. eWeek reports that the new release features “TPM 2.0 support for security authentication, as well as integrating the open source nftables firewall technology effort”. eWeek quotes principal project manager Steve Almy: “The TPM 2.0 integration in 7.6 provides an additional level of security by tying the hands-off decryption to server hardware in addition to the network bound disk encryption (NBDE) capability, which operates across the hybrid cloud footprint from on-premise servers to public cloud deployments.” Version 7.6 is the second major milestone release of 2018. Linux Lite 4.2 Final is now available. Linux Lite creator Jerry Bezencon says Linux Journal I used to buy the 45 dollar version of Red Hat desktop I still think its more polished then fedora.
