Linux Security for Beginners

Mr. Withers takes a look at basic security issues and how to solve them using available tools
Conclusion

I have presented only some of the basics of security; however, there is far more to it than this. The best way to make your system more secure is to learn more about Linux security and to grab some of the tools I have mentioned (see Resources). Security is like philosophy—there is no definitive answer, just a lot of questions and books.
