FNAL has over 5000 PCs running either Linux or Windows software. Protecting these systems efficiently against the latest vulnerabilities that arise has prompted FNAL to take a more central approach to patching systems. We outline the lab support structure for each OS and how we have provided a central solution that works within existing support boundaries. The paper will cover how we identify what patches are considered crucial for a system on the FNAL network and how we verify that systems are appropriately patched.
