    Need a secure Linux


    I want to set up a secure FTP server which people will be able to access from the Internet. What distro of Linux should I use? For that distro, is there a secure make? Does Linux have auditing capabilities built into it? I want to be able to track any/all action that goes on with FTP transactions.

    You could use any distro for this. The security wouldn't be built into the distro, itself, but your implementation of ftp. I would recommend using vsftp (very secure ftp). Then, you can configure vsftpd.conf to the level of logging you desire. The two main security components you'll have to consider here are your implementation of ftp and your firewall.
