"Linux was built from the ground up with security in mind. However, this security will amount to nothing if some basic security measures are not adopted. This is the first in a series of articles that will show you some of the basic security measures that you can adopt for your system."

"Security is not an option, but a way of life". This is the mantra given by Kurt Seifried, the author of the famed 'Linux Administrators Security Guide' and numerous other Security HOWTO's available out there."

"The theme in these series of articles is to make one aware of the trivial security concerns on a stock Linux box. This article aims at giving novice users an insight into conducting a security audit of their systems and helping them take corrective measures in order to avoid any future security lapses. Throughout this article, you will find pointers to various other security howto's and research. This Security guide isn't a substitute for them but merely a look at the various facets of insecure networking that are a part of our everyday computing lives."
