These include all the harden packages listed in the Debian automatic hardening documentation (https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/securing-debian-howto/ch-automatic-harden.en.html), including:
- etc., etc.
Confusingly, it appears that the suite's documentation package will be available for Debian Stretch (9.0), but none of the harden meta-packages are currently slated for that release either.
What gives? Are there alternative replacement packages that I overlooked? If so, what are they?
It may be worth noting that I spent a great deal of time searching for the answer to this question online. There seems to be no information on this topic, and I've found nothing in the mailing lists, though I haven't search as thoroughly there.
All I have found is that the packages must have been available for Jessie at some point, but were later removed, as some Google queries still return dead links to Jessie package information pages.
The harden packages were a novice administrator's godsend, though I understand they were never the complete answer to securing a Debian server. Still, it is odd not seeing any explanation for their exclusion in Debian's newest releases.
