In this new blog series, we’ll lay out a set of baseline recommendations for Linux workstation security to help systems administrators avoid the most glaring security errors without introducing too much inconvenience. These are the same guidelines our own 100 percent remote team uses every day to access and manage the IT infrastructure for dozens of The Linux Foundation projects including Linux, Hyperledger, Kubernetes, and others. Even if your systems administrators are not remote workers, chances are that they perform a lot of their work either from a portable laptop in a work environment, or set up their home systems to access the work infrastructure for after-hours/emergency support. In either case, you can adapt these recommendations to suit your environment.
