[ Thanks to bono for this link. ]

Daniel Swan sent us a note indicating he's updated the c.o.l.s FAQ and it's indeed much improved! Would you like to contribute? Send us a note and share your experiences. The FAQ covers "Specifically, security as it pertains to the Linux operating system. General installation of Linux is not covered, nor are products by other vendors, except where they impact Linux security. It is not my intent to re-invent the wheel, and in cases where relevant information has been covered elsewhere it has been linked to, but is accompanied with commentary on Linux specific issues.

Also, I have purposefully left out pointers to 'sploits, and other such naughtiness. Presentation of such material will benefit those on the offensive end of security more than it will benefit those trying to secure their systems. A holistic view of system security will serve sysadmins far better than will concentrating on protecting against the 'sploit du jour."
