14 steps are shown that help Windows Server 2003 SP #2 (and other Windows NT-based OS variants/ancestors (2000/XP) and decendents (VISTA)) be secured to a CIS Tool 1.x score of 84.735 (possibly better, but going online might be compromised) and the CIS Tool runs on many OS platforms so it can be the 'control' in this experiment, since the test is the same.
QUESTION: Can all (or any) of the UNIX derivants & their users outscore it using the same test in the CIS Tool (CENTER FOR INTERNET SECURITY) and still be online?
(I'd like to find out, via a comparison like this one using a common test, wouldn't you??)
That said, I would like to see scores that users on MacOS X, Linux, BSD variants, and Solaris (possibly others as well via the ports/java driven models of CIS Tool downloadable here:
Which also exists for those many OS platforms besides Windows!
Should anyone outscore that Windows score, outline what steps/methods UNIX derivants users utilize to obtain their scores!
(Especially if they exceed that noted by myself in the first URL above also. In this last point in this challenge, We can all gain by extollnig our methods used to secure the various OS' we all use by such a comparison/competition as was done in the URL above regarding hardening Windows Server 2003 SP #2)).
Bottom-line: To the Slashdot Linux/BSD's/MacOS X/UNIX users — Are you ready to put your money where your mouth is vs. a Windows Server 2003 SP #2 that has been fully secured/security hardened by a 14 step procedure?
(Some honesty is required, those with two machines could super harden 1 to a higher score, and post their score from another machine though — but, cheating is not the point here: Showing one another how to secure our machines however, is)"
"It all started with me getting a call from microsoft inviting me to come and watch the event which was to take place at Air force auditorium, Delhi. Frankly speaking i was not at all interested in going to watch the event as i knew that the projects would be build on
.NET only and i don't like .NET at all. But then, the lady on the phone said the golden words. She said, "You are going to get a Free DVD of windows Vista for personal use, free lunch and tickets to watch the movie Spiderman 3". I was already planning to go and watch the movie the next day which incidentally was the release date (5 may 2007) of the movie and getting printed DVDs of windows Vista was also to my liking. So, i agreed to go to watch the event along with a few of my friends. I was in for a big surprise.
