UNIX secure server : a free, secure, and functional server example
- Publisher: Turun ammattikorkeakoulu
The purpose of this thesis work was to introduce UNIX server as a personal server but also as a start point for investigation and developing at a professional level.
The objective of this thesis was to build a secure server providing not only a FTP server but also an HTTP server and a cloud system for remote backups. OpenBSD was used as the operating system.
OpenBSD is a UNIX-like operating system made by hackers for hackers. The difference with other systems that might partially provide solutions is that OpenBSD requires a fully understanding of the configuration files in order to cover all the security holes, therefore, is needed to go through the documentation and examples of these files.
As a result we have a fully functional server with the next following features: anonymous FTP server, HTTP server including PHP, SSH server and of course a backup system in a cloud with cryptography enabled.
