I thought this would be a good place to ask this question:
I want to open up my default SSH port (enable remote management in system settings and port forward my router) to see how many unauthorized access attempts I receive. Doing this as an experiment, I just wanted some advice before I do it.
In OSX, if I enable remote login but have no users in the "allowed access for: only these users", does this make my system impenetrable, no matter how hard someone tries to force (or bruteforce) their way in?
Are there any other precautions you would suggest I take?
Also, newly in OSX Mountain Lion, intrusion logs have been merged with the system.log file. When I look at it via console, it's all lost in a jumble of other irrelevant data that I have to sift through. Is there a way to only display the specific types of logs that I'm looking for?
