Security best practices for Red Hat and Fedora Core
The Center for Internet Security (CIS) is a non-profit association for the promotion of computer security. Its members, largely North American, range from IBM and Motorola to universities and individuals. Through the consensus of members, it develops a list of best practices for Windows, Linux, Solaris and Free BSD, as well as Cisco routers, Oracle databases, and Apache Web servers. These best practices are incorporated into benchmark scripts and accompanying PDF guides for interpreting the results and improving security with a series of actions and scripts. The CIS Linux Benchmark provides a comprehensive checklist for system hardening.
