Securing Mac Os X Leopard (10.5)
Mac OS X Leopard continues in the tradition of the previous operating system, Tiger, by providing one of the most secure default installations of any desktop operating system. The operating system also includes new features and additional tools to help users manage the security of their data. The install follows the accepted best practice of disabling network services unless explicitly requested by the user, and the default security settings suit the needs of most users in a workstation scenario. While the default installation provides a relatively secure system, it may not always meet organizational security requirements. This guide is aimed at users in environments requiring stronger security controls in their operating system, making full use of the protection features offered by Mac OS X 10.5.
