Is this Ian Chilton? Well, I just wanted to send a message to say that 
I'm working on doing a hint about Shadow and related Security 
Enhancements to a default LFS install.

It's not done yet. I believe a couple of the suggestions I mention might 
be better in the book itself, but since LFS is not designed to be a guide 
to security I figure a hint is a good thing. Let me know if such 
endeavour is not needed.

If Gerard and others decide any of the things I mention will fit nicely 
into the book, I will remove these bits to avoid superfluous info. 
Duplication is not necessary. Might take a week or so to get it all 
together and formatted; then I'll send it to you.

Unless I were to hear from you that I shouldn't bother.
