Re: Security Spin Wallpaper

OK.  Will check into that.  According to what I read, the post included this:

"Initial impression is something like : http://crany.com/images/finger_print2.gif"

So I figured a fingerprint would be OK.  Maybe I read or understood it wrong, but I'll definitely look more into the project to get a handle on what it's all about so hopefully reflecting that more in the art/wallpaper.

Hi Craig,

I think your rendering here is fine and addresses the issue folks pointed out about the fingerprint.

I wonder though if a fingerprint is really a good concept for a security wallpaper. Have you talked to the security spin folks to brainstorm some alternative conceptual ideas? What's the main purpose of the security spin - from their wiki page it looks like its goal is "To provide a fully functional livecd based on Fedora for use in security auditing, forensics, and penetration testing." So one thing you could try to do is to talk to a few system admins who work on security auditing / forensics/ penetration testing (I can introduce you to a few if that would be helpful) and see if they have any ideas as to what kind of wallpaper they would prefer.

A few other ideas:

- develop a 'brand' (a literal brand) or logomark specifically for the security spin that could be imprinted on whatever is the default wallpaper for the current Fedora release
- look for a nice appropriately creative commons licensed wallpaper that gets high marks from security spin users and brand that with a fedora security mark

Hope this helps!

Thanks for your input.  I created 2 more wallpapers based more or less on the previous theme I did.  I see your point about the fingerprint, so I distorted and blurred it which also might make this a more interesting design.  Included are a wallpaper with the standard Fedora color logo, and one with Fedora in white.
