Reported on: 2005-09-25

In chapter 7. Security of the Debian system on page 363:

Joey Hess announced the full security support for the Debian testing release. Even though still inofficial, this makes Debian testing a viable alternative to the stable release, for those with needs for greater currency of software.

Discussion

The support is given by the secure testing team, which established itself over the past year. Even though testing security support is still inofficial, efforts are underway to consolidate and better integrate stable and testing security in the future, to enable official support to be given by the Debian project.

Feedback

Richard Bejtlich, Tao Security: Prospective TDS readers should understand that this book is unlike any I have read on operating systems. Readers will not have to skip pages on setting up Apache or configuring BIND, thankfully! Instead, TDS covers core system administration subjects to a degree I have not seen elsewhere. [...] Krafft takes readers on an inside tour of the how and why of Debian. Rather than just explaining a technique or tool, the author discusses the overall problem, possible ways to approach it, and Debian's solutions. He presents pros and cons for each, and then demonstrates usage with command line syntax and sample output.
