Ubuntu – How to have a Very secure Ubuntu Desktop system

Security

How can I have a Very secure Ubuntu Desktop system and where is the best place online to learn about hardening Linux, not just Ubuntu?

Best Answer

  • To harden Ubuntu servers, there are a number of packages that can be found with:

    apt-cache search harden-
    

    to install all of them, simply use:

    apt-get install harden-*
    

    and start reading the hardening documentation now installed on your system in /usr/share/doc/harden-doc
