Linux Vagrant box to harden VirtualBox ISO image

This came from an ‘insider’ to set up a remote server for live trading:

GovReady™ CentOS 6.5 x86_64 pre-hardened FISMA “server” profile. OpenSCAP, SSG, GovReady installed.
[11:52:40 AM] :
[11:52:45 AM] : government standard hardening
[11:53:25 AM] : theres also some open source tools out there
[11:53:32 AM] : where you can just install your server with all the things you want on it
[11:53:36 AM] : run a scanner
[11:53:42 AM] : and it will tell you where you might have holes
[11:53:48 AM] : and things to fix with the commands to run to fix them
[11:53:51 AM] : make sense?
[11:54:12 AM] : u don’t have to bring it on a network access
[11:54:18 AM] : before scanning too

Cool. Thanks to him for sending. This will make life much easier

I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
