Is there a checklist for securing MacOSX machines?


DISA STIGs are always good:


DISA is the Defense Information Systems Agency, the IT shop for the US Department of Defense. STIGs are the configuration guides that they publish for security networking and computing devices.

  • I've never seen the STIG format before. Funny that Safari won't open them and I had to use Opera. Do you know if STIGs are processed electronically somewhere/somehow? (as an online checklist?) – goodguys_activate Dec 3 '12 at 5:42
  • They provide some in PDF format and some are in XML format. The ones I linked to were in PDF, so I'd be surprised if you couldn't open them. The XML ones are admittedly hard to work with; there is no stylesheet that I know of that will pretty print a STIG. – Mark E. Haase Dec 3 '12 at 22:49
