Just a heads up for all you Mac fanboys/girls…Apple has recently released massive (240 pages each) security configuration guides for Panther (10.3), Tiger (10.4), and Leopard (10.5).
Note the warning from Apple if you are a n00b Mac user:
“To use these guides, you should be an experienced Mac OS X user, be familiar with the Mac OS X user interface, and have at least some experience using the Terminal application�s command-line interface. You should also be familiar with basic networking concepts.”
I have paged through the Tiger guide and it’s pretty detailed…exactly what I was looking for. Really glad Apple finally released these. Hopefully other security professionals using Mac’s (like me!) will take the time to read these guides and harden their systems. Happy hardening! 🙂
