Linux Server Security: Tools & Best Practices for Bastion Hosts

Linux Server Security: Tools & Best Practices for Bastion Hosts Lowest new price: $26.70

Author: Michael D. Bauer
Brand: Brand: O'Reilly Media

Linux consistently appears high up in the list of popular Internet servers, whether it's for the Web, anonymous FTP, or general services such as DNS and delivering mail. But security is the foremost concern of anyone providing such a service. Any server experiences casual probe attempts dozens of time a day, and serious break-in attempts with some frequency as well.This highly regarded book, originally titled Building Secure Servers with Linux, combines practical advice with a firm knowledge of the technical tools needed to ensure security. The book focuses on the most common use of Linux--as a hub offering services to an organization or the Internet--and shows readers how to harden their hosts against attacks. An all-inclusive resource for Linux users who wish to harden their systems, Linux Server Security covers general security such as intrusion detection and firewalling a hub, as well as key services such as DNS, the Apache Web server, mail, and secure shell.Author Michael D. Bauer, a security consultant, network architect, and lead author of the popular Paranoid Penguin column in the Linux Journal, carefully outlines the security risks, defines precautions that can minimize those risks, and offers recipes for robust security. He is joined on several chapters by administrator and developer Bill Lubanovic.A number of new security topics have been added for this edition, including:

  • Database security, with a focus on MySQL
  • Using OpenLDAP for authentication
  • An introduction to email encryption
  • The Cyrus IMAP service, a popular mail delivery agent
  • The vsftpd FTP server
Geared toward Linux users with little security expertise, the author explains security concepts and techniques in clear language, beginning with the fundamentals. Linux Server Security with Linux provides a unique balance of "big picture" principles that transcend specific software packages and version numbers, and very clear procedures on securing some of those software packages on several popular distributions. With this book in hand, you'll have both the expertise and the tools to comprehensively secure your Linux system.

Maximum Linux Security (2nd Edition)

Maximum Linux Security (2nd Edition) Lowest new price: $81.88
Lowest used price: $4.45
List price: $49.99
Author: John Ray
Brand: Brand: Sams

Maximum Linux Security helps Linux administrators identify and plug security holes on their systems by detailing Linux system holes, attack methods, and hacker's tools that hackers have had years to study, explore, and improve upon. As Linux continues to become more and more mainstream, network administrators will need to know all about the weaknesses in Linux systems that hackers and crackers have had years to learn and explore. Maximum Linux Security provides a crash course on the vulnerabilities of Linux systems, and how to protect these systems from outside attacks. Written from the same hacker perspective as Maximum Security, this book contains everything the Linux network administrator needs to know about protecting his or her systems. This edition of the book has been revised, expanded, and updated to cover the latest advances in Linux hacking tools and techniques, and to more thoroughly cover firewalls, intrusion detection, Linux graphical environments, and routers.

As we've all become well aware lately, every complex system has flaws. When the complex system is a computer operating system, such as Linux, or a piece of software running under it, those flaws can provide black-hat hackers with the access they need to steal your data, damage your system, or use your computing resources as a base for attacking other computers. Maximum Linux Security reveals security holes in Linux and does so explicitly. You can follow instructions in this book and break into unsecured Linux machines in a variety of ways. The newest edition of this book includes newer information about Linux security exploits and updated links to information and tools.

The anonymous author of this book has done a fine job of recognizing that his readers, despite the fact that they're probably pretty accomplished power users just because they're messing around with Linux, aren't really experienced with Linux or with computer security. He's careful to explain his subjects precisely. For example, he goes to considerable effort to explain how to set up user accounts properly (with emphasis on preventing obvious security holes), in addition to documenting offensive and defensive weapons like SAINT and Crack. Most entries on software include URL references to the latest versions, as well as cross-references to related programs. --David Wall

Topics covered: Good Linux security practice, as well as specific malicious software packages and ways to defend against them.
