RE: Locking down RedHat

I've found the checklists and checking tools on www.cisecurity.org to be
fairly good.  The checking script gives a rating out of 10 as well, so
you've got a nice metric for your boss.   If anything it's too paranoid
(e.g. it docks points for having a web-server installed, even if that's
the whole point of the server existing), and I wouldn't expect to ever
see a server get 10/10, due to operational requirements.  However, it
does at least raise the possible issues and lets you decide whether the
tradeoff is worth it.  

As mentioned in other replies, it's still just a list of stuff that
"anybody who's done unix for a while knows", but it's nice to see it
written down, codified, and checked for.
