Fedora Focus

Choose Freedom. Choose Fedora.

Freedom represents dedication to free software and content. The central goal for the Fedora Project is advancing software and content freedom. By including free alternatives to proprietary code and content we improve the state of free and open source software and content and limit the effects of proprietary or patent encumbered code.

Freedom sometimes prevents us from taking the easy way out by including proprietary or patent encumbered software in Fedora. We provide and promote free software and content with the end result: releases are predictable and 100% legally redistributable; free and open innovation to meet or exceed closed or proprietary solutions; and a completely free project anyone can emulate or copy for their own purposes.

Stop by the Fedora booth, check in at the Raspberry Pi or Beaglebone kiosk, create a pass phrase, connect with Fedora loves Python, check out the Fedora Labs Security spin, and maybe win a Fedora Tee-shirt.

The Fedora Security Lab provides a safe test environment to work on security auditing, forensics, system rescue and teaching security testing methodologies.

The Security Lab spin is maintained by a community of security testers and developers. It comes with clean and fast Xfce Desktop and customized menu that provides all the tools needed for security testing or to rescue a broken system.

The Live image is crafted using the LiveUSB Creator overlay feature so you can install and update software and save your test results.
