"Whilst this is not directly related to OpenBSD, I was wondering whether OBSD journal readers had found themselves in similar circumstances. We have recently added a Linux box to our otherwise exclusively BSD server farm. Not through choice, but because we have to run a commercial app only available for RH. Our BSD lockdown policy is very clear cut and refined. However, many BSD security mechanisms are not available on Linux (secure levels, file flags, systrace, the minimalist install model etc.). We would like to get the RH boxes host security as near to that of our BSD boxes. Can any of your readership offer hints and tips on such ?"I came to OpenBSD from Linux, and now I'm utterly lost. Anyone reccomend a good set of resources for a clueful OpenBSD admin to quickly secure a Linux box? I know that with a lot of digging and work it can be done, but what about an efficient system?
