Securing Tiger

Sep 11, 2005

I've stumbled upon some resources for securing Mac OS X “Tiger”, mostly through the Corsaire white-paper aptly titled “Securing Mac OS X” [PDF, 41 p., 736 KB].

Tiger can meet the Common Criteria using the Common Criteria Tools provided by Apple. There's a Common Criteria Configuration and Administration Guide [PDF, 108 p., 620 KB], a White Paper [PDF, 3 p., 60 KB] and a NIAP Evaluation Report [PDF, 27 p., 300 KB] available.

Securing against physical access is always a problem, and really hard to prevent in the case of a laptop like mine, but following the guide to Setting up Open Firmware Password Protection in Mac OS X 10.1 or later can help together with a lock and some common sense.
