How to Secure any Linux Server | Automated Server Hardening script

LAMP

  • Data Encryption for communication.
  • Changes protocols which sends important information in plain text.
  • Closes unnecessary services running on server.
  • Keep OS up to date, specially the security patches & malware removal tools.
  • Regularly update security policies.
  • Maintains & regularly checks the server logs.

JShielder Requires following configuration:-

  • Configures a Hostname
  • Reconfigures the Timezone
  • Updates the entire System
  • Creates a New Admin user so you can manage your server safely without the need of doing remote connections with root.
  • Helps user Generate Secure RSA Keys, so that remote access to your server is done exclusive from your local pc and no Conventional password
  • Configures, Optimize and secures the SSH Server (Some Settings Following CIS Benchmark)
  • Configures IPTABLES Rules to protect the server from common attacks
    Disables unused FileSystems and Network protocols
  • Protects the server against Brute Force attacks by installing a configuring fail2ban
  • Installs and Configure Artillery as a Honeypot, Monitoring, Blocking and Alerting tool
  • Installs PortSentry
  • Install, configure, and optimize MySQL
  • Install the Apache Web Server
  • Install, configure and secure PHP
  • Secure Apache via configuration file and with installation of the Modules ModSecurity, ModEvasive, Qos and SpamHaus
  • Secures NginX with the Installation of ModSecurity NginX module
    Installs RootKit Hunter
  • Secures Root Home and Grub Configuration Files
  • Installs Unhide to help Detect Malicious Hidden Processes
  • Installs Tiger, A Security Auditing and Intrusion Prevention system
  • Restrict Access to Apache Config Files
  • Disables Compilers
  • Creates Daily Cron job for System Updates
  • Kernel Hardening via sysctl configuration File (Tweaked)
    /tmp Directory Hardening
  • PSAD IDS installation
  • Enables Process Accounting
  • Enables Unattended Upgrades MOTD and Banners for Unauthorized access
  • Disables USB Support for Improved Security (Optional)
  • Configures a Restrictive Default UMASK
  • Configures and enables Auditd
  • Configures Auditd rules following CIS Benchmark
  • Sysstat install
  • ArpWatch install
  • Additional Hardening steps following CIS Benchmark Secures Cron
  • Automates the process of setting a GRUB Bootloader Password
    Secures Boot Settings
  • Sets Secure File Permissions for Critical System Files

JShielder Installation ;-

  • For testing we will use Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. Before using JShielder LAMP must installed & configured in your Linux system. LAMP is just XAMPP which mostly used on Windows OS.
  • For installing LAMP open terminal type sudo apt-get update && For installing mysql type sudo apt- get install mysql-server mysql-client
