US Military Linux Guides/Tutorials


I had a conversation the other day in which it came up that the U.S Military used Linux and was a good place to learn it. Is anyone aware of a U.S Military Guide/Tutoral that
is available to view?


Thanks in advance!

NIST

Check the NIST standards. Having deployed them, a NIST compliant network/PC/server isn't very user friendly.

Here's a list of the check lists they have. http://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/ncp/repository

You have to dig around some more at NIST to find their guides on securing a server/desktop. A nice way to learn. But heed my warning, once fully implemented, they are not easy to administer.

You'd need a few people with inside access to pubs listings based on internal computer searches and from each branch. Publications have some stock number but some training manuals may not fit into that if they are based on schools.

You want the NSA/DoD STIGs (Security Technical Implementation Guide). Just about every facet of I.T. from Operating System configuration to Encryption algorithm standards to C/C++/C#/.NET/JAVA/etc coding requirements and guidelines are defined in the STIGs and in order for any solution to see the light of day in any DoD environment, proof of compliance must be obtained and accreditation must be granted in accordance with the STIGs.

Here's the requirements matrix for RHEL. I don't know if that's what you're looking for but I hope it helps.
