Configuration Management and Security

Bellovin, Steven Michael; Bush, Randy

Proper configuration management is vital for host and network security. We outline the problems, especially for large-scale environments, and discuss the security aspects of a number of different configuration scenarios, including security appliances (e.g., firewalls), desktop and server computers, and PDAs. We conclude by discussing research challenges.
