    Hi!

    Could you say what distro you use, and what kind of security you are intested in?

    The question you're asking could require a whole book, so please narrow it down a little. In the meantime, linuxsecurity.com is always good

    Good luck

    There aren't any security commands in Linux. There does exist various binary programs and scripts which can be used to make a system more secure. I don't believe there is any standard as to which "security" programs are included with each distribution. There are a variety of programs available and they are sometimes categorized by the type of activity that they do, such as port scanners, email filters, etc. Making a system secure involves much more than can be done with just a couple of security commands. The only commands that I would say are part of any standard are chmod (file permissions) and passwd (user passwords). Also, there are a variety of files located in the /etc directory that have to do with security. Also, each server style program has it's own configuration file for setting up options to make them more secure such as apache, sendmail, etc. You've got quite a lot of research ahead of you. Start out by googling.

    As far as nmap, just type
    Code:
    man nmap
    in a console.
    Also, the html docs are here: http://www.insecure.org/nmap/

    Try googling the rest and see what you can dig up.
