Most likely you will want to follow DISA guidelines. It looks like the
Security Readiness Review (SRR) Evaluation Scripts on the DISA website have
a general UNIX version that also supports linux. Of course this is really up
to your agency and how far they want to go with security, although it may
be worth it to save yourself some headache and go with RHEL. The federal RH
folks could probably help you with all of your security needs as I know they
have some experience with secure networks.
