    CIS benchmark for Freebsd

    http://www.cisecurity.org/ CIS has released a benchmark for Freebsd , If you have never seen this before its worth a look even if you don't use Freebsd as they have the same for linux, win(2000-xp pro), solaris, hp-ux. A great way to see the little things you may have missed. You get a great little pdf with the tool also

    Yep, this is a good site. They have policies that can be imported and applied in W32 hosts. Their unix lockdowns are all very good too. Once you are finished, you can DL their assessment tool which will audit your host and provide you will a report on remaining vulnerabilities (based on the audit level you select).

    Thanks for shining the light on this for others who may not be aware.
