Hi,

Using the bastille scripts will ease your work in hardening your redhat linux:

Hope this helps. Regards.

Re: manual of security for linux

I've used Bastille on HP-UX. That was perfection.,

When I tried it on my test Linux server, the only thing it couldn't handle was starting the named deamon with a non-root user.

This makes the named or DNS daemon harder to exploit, since you don't get root priviledge if you get exploited.

The other doc's are great. Nice posts gentlemen.

Nmap is a very good security audit tool. Please link up http://www.insecure.org/nmap, in the meantime watch the movie The Matrix: Revolutions'. Spot where and when `nmap' is used ?

Re: manual of security for linux

And since this is an hp server ;-)

There is a product from hp (read: costs $), that supposedly is a pre-hardend Linux based
on RH.

Check

http://docs.hp.com/cgi-bin/otsearch/getfile?id=/hpux/internet/index.html&searchterms=tlx%7chp&queryid=20031116-152212

and look for hp-tlx
