Chapter 13. Security Basics

Thanks to the inherent security of its Unix foundation and a secure-by-default configuration, Panther doesn't give its users much to worry about at first boot-up. However, Panther does include several features that help keep out intruders as you accumulate data and customize the default configuration.

Potential threats exist to many elements of an operating system, and, in most cases, Panther's security features address them to a degree greatly surpassing what's required for a typical user. With a bit of additional tightening, Panther can operate with a level of security acceptable for even much more sensitive environments.
