The CIS Community just published v1.1.0 based on R80.10. Look for it under Network Devices.

Maybe you are interested in these documents: R77 Gaia Hardening Guide  and sk106597: Best Practices - Rulebase Construction and Optimization

But in general, hardening is an ongoing process for CP GAiA OS and SW/HW products with Jumbo HFs playing a major role !

I looked for one this morning - the most up to date one I found was from 2007 https://www.cisecurity.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/CIS_Checkpoint_Benchmark_v1.0.pdf

Maybe it would be good to write a more up to date one?

There are hardening guides available for latest versions, for example: https://sc1.checkpoint.com/documents/R80.30/WebAdminGuides/EN/CP_R80_30_Gaia_Hardening/Default.htm

Do you know if they're going to update it for, say, R80.40?

It's a community effort so depends upon backing by community members. If we get more members in that group, then could probably be done. For anyone interested, there's a signup link on the CIS Benchmarks FAQ page

This is also a route to download the current Check Point Benchmark. Notice the link isn't currently working......

"In order to download a CIS Benchmark from Workbench, you will need to join the CIS WorkBench community for that particular benchmark.
