I have a RHEL5 workstation that I would like to put on the UWMedicine
network and join to the AMC domain. Being new to Linux, I am a bit baffled
by what is required to:

- firewall the machine and/or provide intrusion detection
- provide for secure remote login
- provide access to secure SANs in the AMC domain
- jump through the various hoops to complete the Security Cetification

If any of you have ever completed the Security Cetification for a RHEL
workstation, or can provide any guidance on the above issues, please let me
