Hi, I have a number of questions in regards to securing the Fedora 27 workstation.

  1. Is it best to use the default Firewall that comes with Fedora or switch to iptables? Also, which one is more user-friendly out of these two?
  2. What would you recommend as a good av that compliments selinux, and does not produce too many false positives? Or, is there really no need to install any av on a workstation? I think that it would probably be a good idea since I have some TCP ports open being used by services search as TeamViewer, Spotify etc. I was thinking about closing the ports but then I am not sure I would be able to use any of those services.

What I am basically looking for is if there is any need for all them is an AV product with real-time protection that also checks for rootkits and more, A good firewall, and SELinux which is installed already anyway.
