Rasperry Pi 2 Server Setup

This small guide will help you to increase the security of your raspberry and transform it in a 24×7 running server.

 

Security in place

Here a small check list with external references:

  1. Change pi password.
  2. Disable SSH Password Authentication and Root Login. Root login should be already disabled on recent distributions.
  3. Consider installing remote logging. Siemless is a cloud based service which will load all you logs via a vpn, and provide a raspberry-pi guide too.
  4. Configure a firewall

For ease of use, I suggest putting in place webmin:

[bash]wget http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc
apt-key add jcameron-key.asc
apt-get update
apt-get install webmin

[/bash]
