    Get educated on security issues and how to secure linux/unix. Be aware of new bugs and security holes. A good thing to start with is documents on how to tighten up linux, nmap,nessus to be able to scan and try to break in to your installation.

    The security steps often starts before you installs you software..how should i compile my software??, chrooted?? bks utilitys?? a good strategy first, hands on later.
