In the context of -doc the only document I'm aware of is
I've attempted to digest it. It's too complete - e.g. it
talks about securing features [web servers etc] that I do not
believe should exist on a system used by my target audience
Yes, the document is targeted towards a sysadmin audience, not a
desktop user. That being said, it should be easy to write a
"Security for desktops" chapter more targeted towards end-users
including do's and dont's and recommended best practices there.
While it will probably contain all the information you
require, but it's entirely possible it might scare your
friend a bit.
It scares me ;/
Please go through chapter 2 "Before you begin" and 3 "Before and
during the installation". I think those chapters can be easily
applied to a desktop environment. If they "scare you" maybe we
have to tone down the content.
Will do. Probably not today, my furnace is out and cold front coming.
I would recommend it as a separate document or as an appendix
rather than a chapter. You want to refer a newbie to something
small if possible.
