Just found this guide recently and it’s covering the basics I guess. Might be a good read for anyone interested in securing their freshly installed VPS:
thanks for link, I followed tutorial to see if there is anything I’m missing.
is it only me or does fail2ban feels too ancient to work with nowadays ? (I always been a fan of CSF)
As an administrator -
CSF is fucking garbage. It’s moldy feces attached to a hooker’s vagina at the bottom of a dump.
fail2ban at least does what it’s designed to do, but sshguard is a better product.
I tried your advise. my inbox filled with unreachable notifications
Autoboot gonna sock it to ya …
Incoming Dewlance patent infringement suit coming in lol
arrr … well I guess if I’ve set my VM up right, it will just be waiting for a LUKS passphrase whenever I get back to it and realize it’s been powered back up. (Or better yet, a GRUB password).
More good guides are always welcome !
post your tuts here
Any tips and tricks or recommended base settings for first time users of sshguard?
Arch actually has some pretty good first-timer info - Sshguard - ArchWiki
Also, always use VisualHostKeys. If it doesn’t look like an infected molar, then it isn’t right!
