Introduction to Hardening in Middleware
Hello, Today we are going to discuss about introduction to hardening and from next blog onwards we will look into practical part of it.
So, What is hardening and why its done?
I have noticed and personally experienced that there are ton out there on how to compromise the default configurations of Jboss, but no real information on how to secure and mitigate the threats that currently exist.
Yet to see something out there for Jboss and other J2EE applicaiton servers so I decided to do a write-up to help out others in the community that may be struggling to protect the Jboss 5.1.0 servers.
By no means do I take any credit for the information contained within, as I have said most of this information is already out there on the internet and will provide references where applicable.
But would take the credit of simplicity of word and understandable language.
Putting out this together for the administrators out there to have a single place to locate this information and use it as a guideline in hardening their Jboss deployments on Linux.
So, I am soon publishing the hardening step by step guide. So, at the starting stage i.e. during installation of Jboss can harden the Jboss.
Finally, although I have thoroughly tested ALL of the configuration which I am going to post from next blog onwards. All changes should be tested prior to ever implementing these into a production environment.
Thank You !
Happy Learning !!!
