Are you really sure the security of your Linux systems is done properly? Since 2002, Michael Boelen performs research in this field. The answer is short: there is too much to possible and to do.

In this talk, we had a look on how Lynis helps with system hardening. We discussed the background of the tool, lessons learned after 13 years of open source software development, and what the future plans are.
