Question

Regarding server security

  • Posted August 22, 2014

Hey fellas,

I’m fairly if not entirely new to this, so bear with me;

With the apps/images, is security taken care of, or must we make our own modifications with SELinux?

Thanks,

C.

Hi!

Most of the images are pretty basic setups that should give you a building block to get up and running quickly on your projects. I would still recommend taking additional security measures before moving the server into production.

As a first step, I’d create a dedicated user and disable root login. Then, set up some basic firewalling. Also consider using something like fail2ban to protect your server from brute force attacks.
