Checklist Summary:

This UNIX Technology Overview, along with the Operating System (OS) Security Requirements Guide (SRG) (UNIX Version) and associated Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs), provides the technical security policies, requirements, and implementation details for applying security concepts to UNIX systems. The OS SRG (UNIX Version) contains general requirements for operating systems as well as specific requirements for UNIX operating systems. This SRG may be used as a guide for enhancing the security configuration of any UNIX-like system. The Generic UNIX STIG contains all requirements present in the OS SRG (UNIX Version) and, additionally, contains check and fix procedures that are expected to be applicable to most UNIX-like systems.
