Since its inception in the early 1990’s, Linux has made increasing inroads into the production IT server environments in many organizations, often taking the place of legacy Unix and mainframe systems, as well as, proving to be a cost-effective solution to Windows server. The open source foundation of Linux offers many cost savings and flexibility benefits… but also “The Penguins” bring along some significant risks to the party. Linux, especially Ubuntu variants, have emerged as often the preferred vulnerability testing and forensics testing workstation platform of choice – making it an attractive option for cost conscious Information Security and IT Audit professionals. In this pragmatic seminar, we will identify the important Unix/Linux security controls, best practice for secure configuration, and tools and techniques on how to audit Linux and other Unix variants. Additionally, we will demonstrate methods to build inexpensive Linux based IT audit workstations and self-booting Linux media.
