Linux is often the operating system of choice for server deployments due to its stability and security posturing, right out of the box. Unfortunately not everything is “production ready” right after an install. Throughout the internet, there are a lot of Linux hardening and security guides on the internet but most are outdated and provide instructions that are no longer applicable.
Kyle Rankin joins me this week to discuss his latest book, Linux Hardening in Hostile Networks: Server Security from TLS to Tor. This really is a great book and one I would recommend any InfoSec professional pick up to read. It will make a great reference guide and provides an up-to-date hardening guide for most popular Linux distributions.
