I just recently put together a server that I have some files, my music, and other media on.
I also built it so that I could mess with the Linux OS, and experiment with a server environment, just because I am curious.
Apart from disabling services, having a strong password(you know the simple things):
Are there any other more complex things that I could do to better protect the machine? (I am not intereted in simple things, but I am interested in things that I could have to go out of my way to implement.)
Also are there ways that would allow me to log things such as?
- Access time of my files
- Times of System Startup
- Log in Attempts
- Connection Status
- Connected Machines
Can information like this be obtained using some service built it or would there need to be a secondary application etc?
