Computer Security

Visit the University's virus site.

Visit grc.com. They have tests you can run to check the security of your computer system, plus a lot of discussion of security issues. The sites www.privacy.net/analyze/ (this one shows you what information your web browser divulges about you) and www.robertgraham.com/pubs/ are also useful.

Also, use ssh (for secure shell) instead of telnet (if ssh is available), to log into a remote computer: type "ssh user@math.unl.edu" at the prompt of a terminal window.
