Security To Do

  • Create sufficiently unique Admin username and super-secure pw so I don’t need to or have to log in as root
  • Encrypt home directory
  • install security updates — I’m … wow … that I need to stay on top of this without someone doing it for me. Time to adult as an admin.
  • install latest OS security patches
  • Set authentication keys for SSH login (instructions here)
  • Disable FTP login and use SSH instead?
  • Other shizzle in McKerracher’s VPS Tutorial
  • Change port
