DokuWiki plugins

Up

Down

Using plugins in DukuWiki -- and a few plugins you might want to consider using...
DokuWiki, for example, is a great wiki system by itself, but since it can accept plugins, you can easily add some nifty features to it.

The best place to find DokuWiki plugins is the DokuWiki Plugins page, which acts as a central repository and discussion forum for plugin-related stuff. But before you can make use of the plugins, you need to know how to install them.

Add WiKID Two-Factor Authentication to OpenVPN Community On Ubuntu 13.04

Up
vote
Down

These instructions describe setting up two-factor authentication with WiKID Strong Authentication, which is a commercial/open source two-factor authentication system and OpenVPN, an SSL-encrypted VPN, on an Ubuntu 13.04 Linux server using the Radius Pluggable Authentication Module. First, we will configure PAM to use Radius, then we will configure OpenVPN to use PAM and one-time passwords, then we will create a network client on the WiKID server for OpenVPN. We won't go into specifics about installing these services, rather we will focus on configuring them to all work together. read more...

Secure SSH with WiKID two factor authentication

Up
vote
Down

SSH offers a highly secure channel for remote administration of servers. However, if you face an audit for regulatory or business requirements, such as Visa/Mastercard PCI, you need to be aware of some potential authentication related short-comings that may cause headaches in an audit. For example:

  • There is no way to control which users have public key authorization
  • There is no way to enforce passphrase complexity (or even be sure that one is being used)
  • There is no way to expire a public key
In this document we are going to demonstrate how to combine two-factor authentication from WiKID with an SSH gateway server with hosted private keys to create a highly secure, auditable and easy to use remote access solution.

Tutorial: Create a wiki with Apache Derby

Up

Down

One form of communication gaining popularity today is the wiki, which enables users -- not just administrators -- to make changes to a Web site directly through the Web interface, automatically adding features, such as formatting and outgoing links. In this two-part series, you use the ability to embed Apache Derby in a Web application server to create a simple wiki system. This first tutorial gives you an overview of the basic system and regular expressions. The second tutorial shows you how to use Java functions, stored procedures, and triggers within the Apache Derby database to create a simple wiki system. read more...

Personal wikis: Three small, simple alternatives

Up
vote
Down

Simplify things with a wiki...
The problem with most wikis, such as MediaWiki (the engine that powers Wikipedia) is that they take a lot of effort to set up and maintain. You have to deal with not only the wiki software itself but also the Web server and database that underlie the wiki. All of that is overkill for anyone who wants a wiki for strictly personal use.

But there are several applications available to someone who wants to get a wiki working quickly as a desktop tool. They don't require much, if any, configuration.

Two-Factor Authentication on Ubuntu with CAS and WiKID

Up
vote
Down

Single sign-on is a great technology. Requiring users to login to multiple applications is huge hassle, encourages password reuse and simple passwords. Security needs to focus on usability. If you can make a user's life better while increasing security, everybody wins. In this how-to we will set up the open-source CAS SSO product with the WiKID Strong Authentication Server for two-factor authentication for sessions and mutual https authentication for host authentication. Obviously using two-factor authentication for the login increases security because the user must have the factors to get access, in this case, knowledge of the PIN and possession of the private key embedded in the token. The CAS server is running on Ubuntu 11.04 Server and is using Radius to talk to the WiKID Strong Authentication Server Enterprise Edition. read more...

Blender 3D wikibook review

Down

This is a review of a wiki-based book.
The 3D modeling and animation studio Blender enjoys a reputation for being difficult to learn. In fairness, all such 3D design applications demand significant effort because of their inherent complexity, but a lot of free software aficionados who find the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) and Audacity easy to pick up struggle with Blender. Blender 3D: Noob to Pro is a collaboratively written textbook available through wikibooks.org that does a good job of addressing this need for training.

How to Create a Wiki with kwiki

Down

This article covers setting up a Wiki under Debian, starting from the installation of the kwiki software.
Whilst there are many Wiki packages included in the Debian GNU/Linux distribution I've always had a soft spot for KWiki due to its simplicity, Perl nature, and low requirements.

Installing the software under Debian is very simple and we will show how to setup a new installation using the Debian Apache2 webserver package.

Wiki: an introduction and overview

Up
vote
Down

While not as useful as a wiki, I made something similar years ago... a graffiti server.
By avoiding the relative complexity of HTML, adding a new page takes no longer than it would to the type text itself. External links are automatically inserted wherever a page or site URL is quoted and graphics can be included, similarly, by quoting their URL. The real innovation of a wiki, though, lies in creating internal links.

In an article about Snickers, you may want to link to articles on other chocolate bars, With most wiki software, type the other bar's name in CamelCase - i.e. as one word, with each new word's first letter capitalised. To link to a page on KitKats would be easy: the name has two components which are already in CamelCase. As soon as the wiki software spots the word "KitKat", it would treat it as an internal link. If a KitKat page exists, the wiki will link through to it; otherwise, it will link to a new page creation form.

Pawfaliki: A single PHP file wiki

Up
vote
Down

But you don't have to know PHP to easily install and configure it...
Since Pawfaliki consists of just a single PHP (and an accompanying .css file that controls the wiki's appearance), installing it is a complete doddle. Simply copy the pawfaliki.php file into the document root of your server, create PawfalikiPages and PawfalikiTemp directories in the same location, make them writable by the server, and you are good to go.

wikiCalc web spreadsheet: First look
