Unix has become Linux, and it is running on an amazing variety of devices. New lineages of Linux have emerged.Some are highly specialized, some are more generic.

Linux hardening: a 15-step checklist for a secure Linux server

Network World

Most people assume Linux is secure, and that’s a false assumption. The negative career implications of choosing not to harden your Kali Linux host are severe, so I’ll share the necessary steps to make your Linux host secure, including how I use penetration testing and Kali Linux to get the job done. It’s important to note that, while they are many distributions (AKA distros) of Linux and each one differs from the command line perspective, the logic is the same.
