Securing Single User Mode in RHEL6


You have done your RHCE Training and I hope you still remember that how to harden your RHEL6 server.

In case your company security policy requires that your RHEL6 server should prompt for root password even in single user mode you can easily achieve this by editing /etc/sysconfig/init file

and changing SINGLE=/sbin/sushell to SINGLE=/sbin/sulogin

Very small, but a important step in securing single user mode.
