Chapter Securing the Operating System

The mark of a good system administrator is the awareness of and adherence to best security practices. An administrator is expected to be familiar with common security practices. BSD systems are designed with security in mind and provide many mechanisms which allow the system administrator to tune systems to the security requirements of an organization. While the BSDA candidate won't always be responsible for implementing these mechanisms, being able to recognize the features and commands available for securing BSD systems is still an essential aspect of overall security administration.
