Digital Armed Forces is an online community for Hackers, Gamers, and Technology Enthusiasts with the focus on educating everyone about computer/network security and technology.
"Security is a process, not a product." — Bruce Schneier
Currently the Digital Armed Forces website is a random collection of how-to guides which help to educate people on the uses, suggested security features, and software for Linux, BSD, Microsoft Windows, and Apple Mac OSX. In time, the hope of the Digital Armed Forces members is to move beyond basic tutorials and move into more in-depth analysis of software, security threats, and risk mitigation. This may include more tutorials, group projects, social experiments, opinionated blog posts, and even penetration testing.
Hacking is the process of finding ways to circumvent limitations. This includes software, networking, hardware and even people, but is the fundamental essence of innovation. Everyday, people are reasearching and developing solutions for todays problems.
Too much specialization breeds in weakness. By educating others, the members (community leaders) inevitably expand their own knowledge of the subject. We are not experts, but strive to understand as much as we can about whatever we can. Each member of the community brings his/her set of strengths and weaknesses. By sharing and communicating we hope to strengthen our minds.
