[Berkeley Security] Recommended Resources for System Hardening

Postby parityboy » Mon Jan 19, 2015 12:16 am

System hardening is the process of securely configuring computer systems, to eliminate as many security risks as possible. While default security configurations for many products have improved greatly over the years, some options and settings favor ease of use over security, exposing vulnerabilites that can be used to compromise a system. Also, configurations appropriate for home users on private networks may not offer enough protection for systems handling sensitive information on the campus network. The resources below offer guidance on secure configurations and hardening procedures, beyond those required by the campus Minimum Security Standards.

FUCKING RAGEQUIT! They lost the wars against the motherfucking GPL violating embedded industry. Secure kernels from now on only for the sponsors. Sponsor = $200 / mo. Wanna crowdfund anyone? (BTW RBAC audits incl.!)

This are bad news indeed.
The biggest piss take in a while to be honest.

Been deploying grsec on servers and now all the work went the way of doh-doh.

I would be up for some modest crowdfunding.
