Unraid OS 6.8.2 and General Security Tips

I run a virtualized instance of an enterprise-grade firewall on my box. This keeps viruses and other nasties from penetrating my network and infecting my hardware. But at the same time, my friends with benefits can still gain access to my 9TB worth of Hard Disks for their pleasure. It may be hard to swallow, but taking the time to carefully setup your sever will pay dividends later with all that data going in and out, and in, and out.

It's a good blog/article. Thanks.

 

As for ideas: disable SSH OOTB.

Reason: Root has no password yet. Some people have their 22 port already open for other devices they manage on their network.

 

A warning popup before letting the user turn on SSH, unless the user has:

1. ideally set up SSH keys; or

2. At a minimum, set a strong password; or

3. They're network is internal only (i.e. 22 isn't forwarded)

 

...or is this thread for users rather than for Lime?

 

If it's for users only - install the SSH plugin by @docgyver and disable root SSH login, disable passwords, pick/make a non-root user for SSH functions and only use keys. Some people also recommend not using the default port 22. It's much more secure to SSH as a limited user, with keys, and su to root if you need root.

 

I really hope that Lime integrate these SSH features into the OS from the outset because it's essential OS security that is currently being provided by a volunteer. Bless him/her :)
