Linux Security Self-Assessment

When it comes to security, one size does not fit all. This is particularly true for Production Linux. You can’t use the same tools and techniques you use for Windows systems on these high-velocity, high-scale environments.

Linux requires a different approach – one that takes into account all the ways in which Linux is unique:

  • Native root accounts have more control than centralized Windows admins
  • Visibility on Linux is far less common than on Windows
  • Users tend to remain unmonitored in Linux, leading to a greater chance of an undetected breach
  • Security organizations may be less experienced in identifying Linux threat patterns

Download this checklist, derived from SANS guidelines, to assess how your environment compares to the best protected Linux environments out there.
