Mac OS X Security Guides Released…Finally!

Filed under Apple

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! 🙂

    Glad Apple has finally done what they should have done a long time ago. People truly do need proper training when it comes to security. It is no longer a simple process of using the "right" browser and installing a few apps (AV, anti-keylogger, etc). Security is an on-going process that involves continually updating your systems and being aware of the new threats coming out every day.
