Introduction
Mac OS X Leopard (10.5) 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 managethe security of their data. The install follows the accepted best practice of disabling networkservices unless explicitly requested by the user, and the default security settings suit theneeds of most users in a workstation scenario.While the default installation provides a relatively secure system, it may not always meetorganisational 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. It mayalso be of use to System Administrators wishing to enforce an organisation-wide desktopsecurity policy.This guide is an updated version of the
Securing Mac OS X Tiger (10.4)
and includes the newsecurity features offered by Mac OS X Leopard (10.5).
