Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 817102
Update to the "A Guide to Securing Red Hat Enterprise Linux Edition 2" Hardening Guide for RHEL 6
Last modified: 2012-11-09 07:57:05 EST
Description of problem:
In the current RHEL 6 Security Guide Documentation, Section 4.1 "Tips, Guides, and Tools" a Note states:
"References to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 hardening guides are provided in this document until hardening guides for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 can be made available. In the meantime, please note that the hardening guides for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 may not apply completely to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6."
Is there a time line for updating the documentation to be more specific to RHEL 6?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
NSA has not come up with the RHEL6 version of their Hardening Guide yet. The work is in progress and is tracked in the scap-security-guide project .
As far as providing some hardening advice goes, bug 842936 tracks this and provides a patch with a few hardening tips.
Closing this for now. Please re-open if you have a specific request.
Thanks for reporting!
