Building The Raspberry Pi: Securing the Raspberry Pi

Raspberry PiThis post is part of the series on building my new Raspberry Pi; this series is a sub-series of the Adventures with a Raspberry Pi.

The official Raspberry Pi site has details on how to secure the Raspberry Pi. The page covers the following:

  1. Change your default password
  2. Change your username
  3. Make sudo require a password
  4. Ensure you have the latest security fixes
  5. Improve SSH security
  6. Use key-based authentication
  7. Install a firewall
  8. Installing fail2ban

I’d recommend taking a read through the page and enacting at least some of the above.
