Hello all. I am new to the list. My name is Patrick Rutledge, I am
a Sr. Consultant at Red Hat.
I have been working closely in the federal space for the last 7+ years so I am somewhat
in tune with their security needs and focus. Recently I spent almost a year working on a
project in which I deployed a hardened version of ESXi using a modified distribution
containing a special kickstart and other OS tweaks in order to have it easily deployed
overseas to comply with DISA STIGs. Before that I was working for 7 years at a government
customer where I was deeply involved with the scanning and hardening of Unix and Linux
systems. Another security related interest I have is high bandwidth one way data
transfers, in which I hope to start an open source project on soon.
Im ramping up right now with SCAP and hope to be able to provide a RHEL+KVM solution as
my first attempt. In doing so, I will also spend some time looking at the current RHEL
configurations to fill in any missing pieces.
I look forward to working with you all on this project!

address an ever increasing demand for the KVM content.
