2 Introduction

In Part I, “Common Criteria” we mentioned the Common Criteria EAL 4+ certified installation and setup that was sponsored by IBM for a select subset of hardware. This certified build is a great first step for customers wanting to build a secure and hardened base system, yet might not address all of the services and software specifics that many customers would be interested in.

This next part will present a more general view and give recommendations and guidance for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server system security. Some topics may seem repeated here (from the previous part) yet the context is very different. More detail will be provided in some sections and certainly some more general examples for a greater number of services.
