Open Up the Source Code to Lock Down Your Data
Posted on Wednesday December 31, 1969

Meaningful security is more than an app or an OS. It's a mindset. Linux security tools by themselves will not make you or anyone more secure.

Perhaps the single greatest strength of Linux is that it is open source.

On that day, Christine Peterson, a futurist and lecturer in the field of nanotechnology, coined the "open source" term.
