Where is the "security guide" for Fedora 26?

I've been looking at the "current" sysadmin guide for Fedora 26 and it references Red Hat's security guide (which I want to look at), but I've also noticed a reference to Fedora's own security guide.

FYI: It's the third paragraph on the be more specific: the first next to the ! symbol.

I spent the past day or so skimming through what I thought was still valid information only to find out I was reading the documentation for Fedora 19--which happens to be the last known documentation to have its own security guide section. At least, this is my understanding of it.

My question is now:

Can I still reference the Fedora 19 security guide and apply it on all of it's successors AND where is this mentioned security guide for Fedora 26?

I checked the menu three times before posting to make sure I didn't miss it. Where is it?

You're right -- it doesn't yet exist. We're in the process of totally rebooting the Docs project after it had effectively stalled, and it's going to take a while to get content updated.

In the meantime, most of the F19 security guide still applies, although there are going to be differences in some of the details.

Thank you. Is there something I can subscribe to in order to be made aware of when this revamped security guide is published or do I just have to check up every now and then?
