 Securing a New Linux Installation

"From a security professional's perspective, a number of common Linux distributions are insecure "out of the box", and many of the supplied packages are already out of date by the time they reach the shelves. As the security of one's computer and more importantly its data is a priority concern, there are a number of steps that should be taken at the time of installation to secure one's operating system as well as to help identify attempted or successful attacks. These steps are listed below and each is expanded on in detail in the sections that follow."
