CIS Ubuntu Linux 20.04 LTS STIG Benchmark

Center For Internet Security, Inc. 

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

This image of Ubuntu Linux 20.04 LTS is pre-configured by CIS to the recommendations in the associated CIS Benchmark and DoD Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG). CIS Benchmarks are vendor agnostic, consensus-based security configuration guides both developed and accepted by government, business, industry, and academia. The STIG is the configuration standard for DoD IA and IA-enabled devices or systems.

Cloud environments and operating systems are not secure by default. Launching an image hardened according to the CIS Ubuntu Linux 20.04 LTS STIG Benchmark baselines provides added security when an organization has to align with those standards. This image is hardened by CIS and is configured with the majority of the recommendations included in the free PDF version of the CIS Ubuntu Linux 20.04 LTS STIG Benchmark. The existing consensus-based CIS Ubuntu Linux 20.04 LTS Benchmark Level 1 and Level 2 profile recommendations which are mapped to applicable STIG recommendations have been added to a new STIG profile which includes the additional requirements from the STIG not covered in the Level 1 and Level 2 profiles. When users are applying CIS Benchmarks and need to be STIG compliant, they will be able to apply the STIG profile which compiles those Level 1 and Level 2 recommendations along with the new STIG recommendations into a single profile. All of the Level 1 and Level 2 recommendations not included in the STIG profile will need to be applied and assessed separately.
