    Lynis is a good tool that will help you harden your system. I believe in redhat it is already in the EPEL repo so you should be able to sudo dnf install lynis and run it.

    While I think it's fair to recognize the amount of work to patch Windows for security and compatibility, I also think it's unfair for you to regard SteamOS as a "hobbyist" OS that has poor security. SteamOS is based on Arch Linux. From Linux, to Arch distro, to SteamOS, this open source development loop cannot be compared with what you call a "phase" Windows has gone through. The only "phase" I saw since Windows 95 is how Microsoft commercially pushed this OS on every PC possible such that Valve had to rely on WINE to get out of Windows's control. At least for security, the dev team of Arch take security very seriously and I'm sure you know the robustness of Linux in general to win the servers as opposed to Windows servers. Sure, SteamOS is behind the kernel schedule at the moment as opposed to mainstream Linux distros, but a moment ago I ran one of popular security audit script Lynis on my SteamOS, and it turned out to be a hardening index of 64, which is a decent number among all general purpose Unix machines.
