MongoDB one click droplet security ufw
Hi, i got a one click MongoDB droplet and i want to connect it to another Debian droplet with installed Node.
To secure MongoDB i followed this tutorial:
Reaching this point Step 1 — Enabling UFW since into my Mongo droplet i have ufw with preallowed 3 ports for ipv4 and 3 ipv6 22 - 80 - 443 i have to disable them all and follow along with the tutorial the 80 443 have to be open.
As far as i know port 22 must be open so i can access into it, so i don’t have to allow openSSH since is already open right?
For security reasons i just have to create a tunnel using this command:
ssh -L 4321:localhost:27017 use_your_username@use_your_droplet_ip -f -N
and permit only ssh and closing https and http ports to connect to my node droplet? it’s secure enough?
