Security audits for Linux

Security expert James Turnbull recommends resources for hardening your IT fortress.

What should I look when performing a security audit for Linux? Can you provide a list for me?

There isn't a simple list. It depends on what daemons and services you are running. There is an excellent checklist here.

This should be a good starting point. There are also a number of excellent resources available online and in books that you should be able to find via Google. You could also have a look at the guides and standards at theCenter for Internet Security.
