This section highlights various security items from Fedora.

Fingerprint Readers

Fingerprint readers are now better integrated with Fedora 11. Gnome users can easily setup fingerprint authentication using gnome-about-me, and will allow the ability to login from both Package-x-generic-16.pnggdm and Package-x-generic-16.pnggnome-screensaver.


DNSSEC (DNS SECurity) is mechanism which provides integrity and authenticity of DNS data.

SHA-2 support

TBD: application-specific notes about SHA-2 will go here. See Features/StrongerHashes#Release_Notes and Hash_algorithm_migration_status#Configuration.
