Hi lads, this paranoid penguin has been looking for information about Secure
Distributions. Has anybody got experience with any of the list below? Which
would be your recommendations?
Basically what I need to do is to implement security for a remote network
with the following:
A) A secure Distributions, preferable
B) If possible, that distribution would be managed through a web console in
case they sack my ass.
C) Obviously encryption between the server's console and the web browser.
D) Firewall (after of the "controversial firewall question" saga, I'm going
to go for iptables as it has stateful capabilities or that's what it says in
www.netfilter.org, required by the board)
E) Install an IDS (Snort with Guardian would do fine, I think)
F) Be able to manage everything remotely.
This are the secure distributions I've seem are more popular. Any
