Part II: Station Security > FreeBSD Station Security

Chapter 4. FreeBSD Station Security

This chapter demonstrates how to lock down FreeBSD workstations for use on a wireless network. It will explain required and recommended kernel tuning, secure configuration of the wireless card, locking down the operating system, and adding third-party software to further enhance the security of the machine. Many of the security practices documented in this chapter are general best practices that should be applied to any workstation (but rarely are). However, without mechanisms geared for wireless security, standard wired network best practices alone are not enough.
