Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

What are you trying to accomplish? Books have been written on this…I cover Linux/UNIX security in Hacking For Dummies. You need good tools, knowledge of the OS and its weaknesses, and a hacking mentality. The Tiger and Bastille tools are a good place to start.

    Well, the simplest way to perform your security assessment is by using vulnerability scanning tool like Nessus "http://www.nessus.org/nessus/" to check your running system vulnerabilities. After that you can take the right action(s) to correct founded vulnerabilities "if any". Also, you can follow OS hardening guidelines and best practices like in security benchmarks available at "http://www.cisecurity.org/".
