Hardening of a system often means configuration and fortification of a system. It is the process of securing a system by reducing its surface of vulnerability; the more functions a system fulfills, the larger its vulnerability. Hardening can also be the tightening of security during the design phase and construction of a system. The area of hardening can be vast, and includes ideas such as: least privilege, mandatory access control, role-based access control, a read-only file system, intrusion prevention and detection, firewalls, logging, and more.
You can shape the dialog of this lunch-time meeting by letting us know what you’re most interested in hearing about.
