Good point,
What about a terminal based security configuration wizard that could be
launched by the user after the install finishes? I don't know if any
current solutions exist that would allow  a novice to easily configure
security-groups and firewall/iptables after an install completes. I think
if you combine some of the most common hardening tasks into an easy to use
script with some default templates, it could make things a bit simpler.
Hopefully this would eliminating some of the reasons folks just disable the
security features. I think the SELinux troubleshooter has helped accomplish
the same thing for desktop installs.
