In many FIPS 140-2 certificates, Windows must be placed into FIPS 140 mode as well as run in "single user mode". I am familiar with the local/group policy objects to enable FIPS mode. However, "single user mode" is almost always written in quotations (as I have done).
I'll get straight to the problem, which is quite urgent, so I hope someone here will be able to help me :)
I'm administrating a big Ubuntu 12.04 server, and my user recently lost sudo rights to this server. I was the only admin on this server, and don't have physical access to the server, so I can't use recovery mode to fix the problem.
I am new to the linux kernel development area. I want to know what is the difference between kernel mode stack and user mode stack? Does each process has a user mode stack and a kernel mode stack?? Or Each process has a user mode stack and there is only one kernel mode stack that is shared by all processes in the kernel mode?
I am making installation for school computers. I would like to remove single user mode booting, which can make student root user. How to permanently remove single user / recovery mode from GRUB? I am also concerned with updating kernel (update-grub)
I DO need GRUB for booting into Windows installation.
