CIS Ubuntu Linux 16.04 LTS Benchmark v1.0.0.3 - L1

Center For Internet Security, Inc. 

Hardened according to a CIS Benchmark - the consensus-based best practice for secure configuration.

This instance of Ubuntu Linux 16.04 is hardened according to a CIS Benchmark. CIS Benchmarks are consensus-based security configuration guides both developed and accepted by government, business, industry, and academia. Launching an image hardened according to the trusted security configuration baselines prescribed by CIS will reduce cost, time, and risk to your organization. This image has been hardened by CIS and is configured with the majority of the recommendations included in a free CIS Benchmark that can be downloaded from the CIS website. Hardened according to a Level 1 Benchmark, this version is intended to provide a clear security benefit without inhibiting the utility of the technology beyond acceptable means. The Benchmark that is the basis for this image was developed for system and application administrators, security specialists, auditors, help desk, and platform deployment personnel who plan to develop, deploy, assess, or secure solutions that incorporate Ubuntu Linux 16.04. CIS Benchmarks are developed in a unique consensus-based process comprised of hundreds of security professionals worldwide as de facto, best-practice configuration standards.
