 How to harden GNU/Linux against local intrusions

"Since actual hacking methods are very uncommon due to the level of expertise they require, we'll limit our discussion to hardening the built-in boot modes. These modes are in place mainly to recover or repair a computer after a system failure or forgotten password. Because these necessary failsafes exist, physical security is the weakest layer of computer security, no matter what operating system is being used. You need to be logged in as root to perform these steps, with the exception of the BIOS changes."
