IPFire

IPFire

IPFire è una distribuzione Linux orientata al networking, che offre, modularmente:

  • Firewall
  • Web Proxy
  • VPN Gateway
  • Intrusion detection
  • Quality of Service
  • Virtualizzazione
  • Wireless access point

Il tutto pensato per essere semplice da configurare ed è costantemente aggiornato.

Versione 2.19 Core 122

The distribution was rebased from our old long-term supported kernel to the new kernel 4.14.50.

Most importantly, this kernel improves the security of the system, increases performance and makes the core of IPFire more up to date and modern again. This update also enables mitigation against Meltdown and Spectre on some architectures. On Intel-based platforms, we update the microcode of the CPUs when the system boots up to avoid any performance penalties caused by the mitigation techniques.

Unfortunately, grsecurity is incompatible with any newer kernels and has been removed. This is connected to the decision of the grsecurity project to no longer open source their patches. Luckily the kernel developers have backported many features so that this kernel is still hardened and secure.

ARM systems won’t be able to install this update due to the kernel change which also requires changes on some bootloaders. For those users, we recommend to backup the system, reinstall and then restore the backup. The re-installed system will only come with a single ARM kernel instead of multiple for different platforms that we had before. It helps us to keep the distribution smaller and makes development efforts easier.
