Sysadmin 101: Securing Leopard

Robert Palmer

Security researchers at Corsaire have published a PDF whitepaper discussing best practices for securing Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard in a networked environment. The whitepaper is free.

"While the default installation provides a relatively secure system, it may not always meet organizational security requirements. This guide is aimed at users in environments requiring stronger security controls in their operating system, making full use of the protection features offered by Mac OS X 10.5," the whitepaper says in its introduction.

"It may also be of use to System Administrators wishing to enforce an organization-wide desktop security policy."

The guide also discusses key security differences between Leopard and Tiger, and builds upon previous guides for those operating systems.
