2. History of this Web Page

I have several computers that the SDSC is kind enough to allow me to place directly on the Internet. One of the policies they have is that if a system is broken into, it will be confiscated for investigation. In order to keep this from occurring, I researched how to secure them. Since there were multiple systems (same operating system), I documented what I had done, so that I could do it again. Tom Perrine, SDSC's senior computer security expert at that time, saw what I had done, and suggested that I give a presentation on it.

Instead of a presentation, I decided to create a paper. This web page is that paper.
