Post date: April 11, 2006, 22:04 Category: Security Views: 9301 Comments
Tutorial quote: This tutorial on how-to harden or improve security on OpenBSD Internet servers includes sections that apply to any UNIX system. Hardening is making a computer more secure by removing unneeded functions, restricting access and tracking changes and processes. It was revised to cover OpenBSD 3.0 on Dec. 15, 2001 and includes an overview of the 2.9 to 3.0 changes. A new page on priorities ranks the value of the techniques presented here. Familiarity with UNIX system administration but not OpenBSD is assumed.

Post date: April 11, 2006, 22:04 Category: Network Views: 7315 Comments
Tutorial quote: The Apache Web Server is installed as part of the OpenBSD base system. This guide will help you configure the web server: (Apache 1.3.12 is released with OpenBSD 2.7 and 1.3.9 with OpenBSD 2.6)

To see how configurable the Apache/OpenBSD combination is we also look at allowing administrators to remotely review the server's status, we setup the system so we allow users on our system to have their own personal web-space. Of course, for the security counscious you probably want to turn some of these things off after you get things up and running.

Post date: April 28, 2005, 02:04 Category: Network Views: 7647 Comments
Tutorial quote: Firewalls are a required component in commercial and residential computer networks.

It can also become a liability when hardware or applications fail, leaving potential customers unable to reach your servers. A properly designed and executed failover configuration for your primary firewall will address many of these concerns. This article introduces a proven method for installing redundant stateful firewalls using native OpenBSD features.

Tutorial quote: Users who want their OpenBSD machine to perform specific functions or need additional device drivers might want to customize their kernel. In other OS's, like some types of Linux, it is very popular to rebuild the kernel because the default is so bloated. For most users, the default OpenBSD kernel is sufficient; however, you should still apply kernel patches, which will require rebuilding and installing a fresh kernel.
