Intro to Linux System Hardening, and Applying it to BackTrack Linux Derbycon 2012 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Intro to Linux System Hardening, and Applying it to BackTrack Linux
Derbycon 2012

This introductory level talk is designed for people that know a little bit about Linux and a how to run Backtrack. The main target audience would have a junior level administration experience, who also knows about Bactrack.

It looks at how to do basic system hardening on CentOS and Ubuntu, using systems with default installs. It then looks at using those same tactics to systems running Backtrack. Along the way, I discuss why I don’t like using virtual machines, multiboot, liveCD or USB to run Bactrack in the field, and why I think it should be ran on a dedicated machine.
