CIS Compliance for Ubuntu
NOTE: These instructions apply to Ubuntu 18.04 and 16.04 LTS releases. On Ubuntu 20.04 the CIS tooling has been replaced with the Ubuntu Security Guide.
Ubuntu contains native tooling to automate compliance and auditing with the Center for Internet Security (CIS) benchmarks. The Center for Internet Security (CIS), develops the CIS benchmark documents for Ubuntu LTS releases. As these documents contain a large number of hardening rules, compliance and auditing can be very efficient when using the Ubuntu native tooling that is available to subscribers of Ubuntu Advantage.
