Citações/Quotes: Bruce Schneier sobre segurança

“The mantra of any good security engineer is: “Security is not a product, but a process.” It’s more than designing strong cryptography into a system; it’s designing the entire system such that all security measures, including cryptography, work together.”

Bruce Schneier, author of “Applied Cryptography”.

1001 ways to harden Linux

[OpenBSD 4.4]


Somente duas falhas remotas na instalação padrão em mais de 10 anos!

O projeto OpenBSD produz um sistema operacional LIVRE, multi-plataforma, do tipo UNIX baseado no 4.4BSD. Nossos esforços enfatizam a portabilidade, padronização, correção, segurança pró-ativa e criptografia integrada. O OpenBSD suporta emulação binária da maioria dos programas do SVR4 (Solaris), FreeBSD, Linux, BSD/OS, SunOS e HP-UX.

TrustedBSD – Home

TrustedBSD Project

The TrustedBSD project is an open source project developing advanced security features for the open source FreeBSD operating system, including file system extended attributes and UFS2, Access Control Lists, OpenPAM, security event auditing with OpenBSM, mandatory access control and the TrustedBSD MAC Framework, and the GEOM storage framework. Many technologies from TrustedBSD may also be found in operating systems beyond FreeBSD, including Mac OS X, NetBSD, OpenBSD, and Linux.

Fort Knox for Linux

About the FKL Project

Fort Knox for Linux has created documents on setting up Linux and Apache based on best practices. These documents are specific towards Redhat and SUSE; however, they are general enough to be used with other types of unix. The second task of the project implemented these practices in Bastille, and created an auditing function.


The Bastille Hardening program “locks down” an operating system, proactively configuring the system for increased security and decreasing its susceptibility to compromise. Bastille can also assess a system’s current state of hardening, granularly reporting on each of the security settings with which it works.

ELE is a bootable Live CD Linux distribution with focus on privacy related software.
It is based on Damn Small Linux and aims to be (obviously) as small as possible. The first release was 65M, the current one 61M.

Linux is an operating system that assumes that its operator is under
assault from the government
(it was intended for use by Chinese and
Syrian dissidents), and it does everything it can to keep your
communications and documents a secret.

Trusted Extensions at

Solaris Trusted Extensions ™

The Solaris Trusted Extensions project is a reimplementation of Trusted Solaris 8 based on new security features in Solaris 10
. It has been renamed because it will be delivered as an optional set of extensions to Solaris. The layered functionality consists of a set of label-aware services that are derived from Trusted Solaris 8. – Supplying offensive security products to the world

BackTrack is the most top rated linux live distribution focused on penetration testing. With no installation whatsoever, the analysis platform is started directly from the CD-Rom and is fully accessible within minutes.
