2.3.2. Maintenance

After a host has been installed it needs to be kept up to date. This standard lists a monthly update cycle with regular package integrity checks. These checks make sure the packages installed on the system come from a trusted source as well as alerting administrators to obsolete or unsupported packages so they can be handled. There are also checks in place to make sure services are restarted after an update to protect against potential service violations. Many of these checks are encouraged to be run in cron so the admins don't have to do additional work. Once these checks are in place they will alert the admin on their own when actions need to take place.
