"Inveniam viam aut faciam" : I will either find a way, or I shall make one


SECURING YOUR NEW LINUX BOX

You've finally done it, you have thumbed your nose at the monopoly which is Microsoft, you have installed linux. Well done! Glory in that newfound feeling of freedom! Unfortunately I have to interject with some harsh realities though, you still have work to do. Even with linux, you have to go that little bit further to make it more secure. But fear not, it is not difficult, in fact here is a general list to work through, just remember - "That which is not explicitly permitted is expressly forbidden"..
Well I hope that helps, but bear in mind this is a general list. There are times when you might not be able to implement some of these or when you may need to implement more stringent measures, but whatever the circumstances this list should be a good start towards a secure linux machine.
