Hardening Guides for RHEL 5


Just noticed where the NSA has made available two documents on hardening and secure configuration of RHEL 5. Should be interesting to read through the documents to see what they recommend. I wonder how much of this can be passed on to the Fedora community.

    Almost all of it can be passed on. There are great tips in there – kernel sysctl’s tuning, SSH hardening, disabling coredumps, using AIDE, and disabling SUID on unneeded binaries, just to name a few. I found it a really good read,
