A Linux Security HOWTO

This Linux Security HOWTO is intended for a technical audience, Linux system administrators, and security people in corporations and organizations that have to use commercial Linux distributions in production. The main objective for this Linux Security guide is to discuss basic Linux security requirements for production systems that are being audited. This document covers various system services like SSH which are usually enabled on most Linux production servers. However, this article does not cover services like Apache, Samba etc. since these services are usually not needed on all production systems. Also, this article does not cover various security features that require kernel patching. For most companies this is not an option due to support issues.
