Aimed at administrators and users of Linux systems and networks it contains over 120 pages of documentation, examples and resources for securing Linux. The document is being released free of charge for most use and is available as an adobe acrobat document (the reader is freely available at www.abobe.com).

Topics covered include virtual private networking, shadow passwords, user and system administration, specific security information for network services such as Sendmail, Apache, Wu-FTPD and more.

This is the first comprehensive non distribution specific security book or guide for Linux, and it is free for non commercial use. The guide is currently at version 0.0.9 (the "I didn't want to wait for 0.1.0 so I released it early" release) and can be downloaded from: http://www.securityportal.com/lasg/
