Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Red Hat has published [PDF] a white paper covering the state of
security for the first five years of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.
"Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 was released on February 15th, 2005.
This report takes a look at the state of security for the first
five years from release. We look at key metrics, specific
vulnerabilities, and the most common ways users were affected by
security issues. We will show some best practices that could have
been used to minimize the impact of the issues and also take a look
at how the included security innovations helped."
