falko's picture

This tutorial shows how you can set up a Xubuntu 12.10 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge. Xubuntu uses the lightweight XFCE desktop environment.

falko's picture

This howto will show you the way to set up OpenVPN to authenticate users against the LinOTP authentication backend. Thus you can bring up your VPN using two factor authentication with different kind of OTP tokens. The interesting part is, that we will also use client certificates, so that the VPN only gets established if the machine has the right client certificate and the user has the right OTP token.
