"The Bastille Linux development team is proud to announce the first release of the Bastille Linux hardening script. The Bastille Hardening script attempts to provide the most secure, yet functional, Redhat 6.0 system available. (Support for Red Hat 6.1 is forthcoming.) Bastille Linux was designed with several major goals:"

Bastille Linux draws from every available major reputable source on Linux Security. The initial development integrated Jay Beale's existing hardening scripts for Solaris and Linux with most major points from the SANS Securing Linux Step by Step, Kurt Seifried's Linux Administrator's Security Guide, and several other sources."

Bastille Linux has been designed to educate the installing administrator about the security issues involved in each of the script's tasks. Each step is optional and contains a description of the security issues involved."
