This title assists users and administrators in learning the processes and practices of securing
workstations and servers against local and remote intrusion, exploitation, and malicious activity.
Focused on Red Hat Enterprise Linux but detailing concepts and techniques valid for all Linux
systems, this guide details the planning and the tools involved in creating a secured computing
