Linux Foundation Issues Security Checklist for Sys Admins

The Linux Foundation recently made available a set of best security practices specifically aimed at Linux system administrators to assist them with protecting the systems they are responsible for from compromise.

The advice is divided into 4 severity levels categories: low, moderate, critical, and paranoid. The list of recommendations should help you better defend any Linux systems that you administer in your corporate environment and can be used to supplement your existing defences/procedures.

I hope that you find this list useful. The checklist can be viewed here. Further advice on hardening Linux workstations is provided at the end of a previous blog post

Thank you.
