How to encrypt your traffic with SSH and tunnel it through Tor for privacy and security...
For communicating anonymously on the Internet you use Tor. For secure communications, so that nobody can read your private information you use SSH. Combine both, and you have a secure and anonymous communication. In this hack, well show you how to use Tor to anonymize your SSH connections.

Use pam_abl module to stop brute force attacks against your SSH server...
Practically all Unix and Linux servers run an SSH service to let administrators connect securely from remote locations. Unfortunately for security administrators, attacks on SSH services are popular today. In this article I'll show you how can you protect machines running SSH services from brute force attacks using the pam_abl plugin for SSH pluggable authentication modules (PAM).

Tutorial: Secure Chat with YTalk and SSH

Up
vote
Down

Encrypting your chat sessions with SSH.
Under normal conditions, when everybody trusts everybody else, YTalk, talk, ntalk, et cetera will work without any problems. Alas, I found the real world a little more difficult and disappointing. It turned out my buddies couldn't reach me because of firewalls. Either their firewall rules would block the UDP connection or my firewall rules would stop it. Then there was the issue of corporate firewalls and even the ISP who sometimes played the big brother by blocking certain ports for the protection of our Windows brethren. Rather than taking the time to reset my firewall to better rules and hoping my buddies could take the same effort for theirs, I opted for another approach: remote logging with SSH and using guest accounts expressly setup for the purpose.

sslh ssl/ssh multiplexer

Up
vote
Down

sslh accepts connections on specified ports, and forwards them further based on tests performed on the first data packet sent by the remote client.Probes for HTTP, SSL, SSH, OpenVPN, tinc, XMPP are implemented, and any other protocol that can be tested using a regular expression, can be recognised. A typical use case is to allow serving several services on port 443 (e.g. to connect to ssh from inside a corporate firewall, which almost never block port 443) while still serving HTTPS on that port. read more...

Secure NFS: Tunneling NFS over SSH

Up
vote
Down

The goal of this howto is building an NFS server that works on an SSH tunnel. This way all traffic between your hosts and the file server is encrypted and thus more secure. Normally you should enter a password every time you try to establish an SSH connection but since we could be mounting at bootup we will use ssh-keygen to create a keypair so we can login without entering a password. We will, however, limit that login session to executing just one command. read more...

Anyterm: Remote access without SSH

Browser-based secure terminal access to remote systems...
Anyterm allows you to have secure terminal access to a server without needing any special software on a client machine beyond a Web browser. For example, with Anyterm you can open a terminal into your server from an Internet cafe. Because Anyterm uses a pseudo-terminal for communication with the shell, you can run most command-line tools from an Anyterm terminal running inside a Web browser.

Tutorial: Set up Kojoney SSH Honeypot on CentOS 5.5

Up
vote
Down

Kojoney is a low level interaction honeypot that emulates an SSH server. The daemon is written in Python using the Twisted Conch libraries. In computer terminology, a honeypot is a trap set to detect, deflect, or in some manner counteract attempts at unauthorized use of information systems. Generally it consists of a computer, data, or a network site that appears to be part of a network, but is actually isolated, (un)protected, and monitored, and which seems to contain information or a resource of value to attackers. This tutorial shows how you can compile and install an updated version of Kojoney on a CentOS 5.5 server. read more...

Secure your VNC connection with SSH

Up
vote
Down

VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is remote control software which allows you to view and fully interact with one computer desktop using a VNC viewer on another computer desktop anywhere on the LAN or Internet. The two computers don't even have to be the same type, so for example you can use VNC to view a Windows XP desktop at the office on a Linux or Mac computer at home.

Once you are connected, traffic between the viewer and the server is unencrypted, and could be sniffed by someone with access to the intervening network. Is security imported to you, we recommend tunneling the VNC protocol through some more secure channel such as SSH. This workshop describes how to connect from a Windows XP client to a Linux (OpenSuse 10.3) server via VNC and to tunnel this connection using SSH. read more...

Restrict users to SCP and SFTP with Chrooted rssh on RHEL

Up

Down

FTP is insecure protocol, but file-transfer is required all time. You can use OpenSSH Server to transfer file using SCP and SFTP (secure ftp) without setting up an FTP server. However, this feature also grants ssh shell access to a user.

In this article series we will help you provide secure restricted file-transfer services to your users without resorting to FTP. It also covers chroot jail setup instructions to lock down users to their own home directories (allow users to transfer files but not browse the entire Linux / UNIX file system of the server) as well as per user configurations. read more...

Build an OpenWRT SSH server on a cheap, diskless, fanless, noiseless and very power-efficient home router...
Now I can tunnel my traffic through SSH using a home router with Linux. It was easy to set up and cheap. And I needed a router at home anyway. I have a basic Linux-like system, and the most interesting for me: OpenSSH. Also, it is small, quiet, power effective and reliable.

There are two popular Linux-based firmware projects for routers: OpenWrt and DD-WRT. The first thing you have to do is to pick the one you want. Check supported hardware before you decide.

This tutorial describes how to give users chrooted SSH and/or chrooted SFTP access on Debian Squeeze. With this setup, you can give your users shell access without having to fear that they can see your whole system. Your users will be jailed in a specific directory which they will not be able to break out of. I will also show how to restrict users to SFTP so that they cannot use SSH (this part is independent from the chroot part of this tutorial). read more...

An introduction to OpenSSH on Unix / Linux...
OpenSSH, an OpenBSD project, is an incredibly secure implementation of the SSH protocol, a way of logging into a remote machine. For users of outdated protocols such as RSH, rlogin, and Telnet, it's an updated, secure replacement. For those who have never used anything like it, SSH can become a very valuable tool.

SSH is usually used to access a remote machine's shell, although there are other uses, such as:

HPN-SSH: Multithreaded SSH

This performance-enhanced SSH/SCP variant also dynamically allocates and sizes the receive buffers for substantial performance inprovement.
This cipher mode introduces multi-threading into the OpenSSH application in order to allow it to make full use of CPU resources available on multi-core systems. As the canonical distribution of OpenSSH is unable to make use of more than one core, high performance transfers can be bottlenecked by the cryptographic overhead.
