is open source more secure ?

Hi Guys, I'd like to know your opinion. A friend of mine claims, an open source OS like linux is more secure than a closed one like AIX because 'if he is hacked, he can do countermeasures'. I believe the opposite is the case - it's more secure if not everybody knows the kernel and is able to... (6 Replies)

install-catalog - Manage a SGML or XML centralized catalog SYNOPSIS
install-catalog [ option ] action ... [ [ -d] [ --delegate] ] [ [ -a centralized ordinary] [ --add centralized ordinary] [ -r centralized ordinary] [ --remove centralized ordinary] [ -h] [ --help] [ -v] [ --version] ] DESCRIPTION
This shell script allows to handle a centralized catalog referencing other "ordinary" SGML or XML Open Catalogs. An Open Catalog contains a set of directives defined by OASIS, mostly used for defining equivalences between FPIs (Formal Public Identi- fiers) and real file names (see TR9401:1997 on http://www.oasis-open.org <URL:http://www.oasis-open.org>). The Open Catalogs usually reside in /usr/share/sgml. A centralized catalog is a special Open Catalog that includes only comments and CATALOG directives pointing to other catalogs (or DELEGATE directives if supported). The centralized catalog can be the key to all other SGML resources. It usually resides in /etc/sgml. The centralized catalog can be edited manually or through the install-catalog script to add or remove references to other ordinary cata- logs. This script is mainly destined to software package post-installation scripts. An example of a typical call to install-catalog is: install-catalog --add /usr/share/sgml/docbook/dsssl-stylesheets-1.54/catalog /etc/sgml/sgml-docbook-4.0.cat This call will install in /etc/sgml/sgml-docbook-4.0.cat a reference to /usr/share/sgml/docbook/dsssl-stylesheets-1.54/catalog. OPTIONS
Here is the list of options that can influence the way install-catalog works: [ [ -d] [ --delegate] ] Use DELEGATE instead of CATALOG directives to specify a pointer ACTIONS
Here is the list of actions that can be requested to install-catalog: [ [ -a centralized ordinary] [ --add centralized ordinary] ] Declare a new SGML package. [ [ -r centralized ordinary] [ --remove centralized ordinary] ] Remove a previously installed SGML package. [ [ -h] [ --help] ] Print a short help message and exit [ [ -v] [ --version] ] Print the version identifier and exit FILES
