Where to Go from Here

The Ohio State University's security group says they have not experienced any security incidents involving OS X on campus, yet. They do point out, however, that as OS X becomes more widespread, crackers will start to target OS X machines. Of course, they recommend that you take a proactive security stance with your machine.

In this chapter, we have attempted to help you do just that. You have seen some basic security measures that you can follow in securing your machine. In addition, you have learned about ipfw, the built-in firewall package that comes with OS X. You have learned about some intrusion detection tools. After reading this chapter, you should at least follow those basic security measures. Hopefully, you will also decide to use some combination of the firewall package and intrusion detection tools.
