Server hardening

Server hardening is a set of practises and approaches for enhancing the security of a commercially available server. Server hardening is a requirement of security frameworks like PCI-DSS, and it's usually incorporated when businesses embrace ISO27001

What do your mean by server hardening?

The goal of server hardening is to limit the server's attack surface. The attack surface refers to all of the possible ways for an attacker to gain access to or harm the system. This contains all network interfaces and software that has been installed. The attack surface can be decreased by uninstalling unnecessary software and configuring the remaining software to maximise security. As a result, an attacker has fewer chances to get access to the server.

Hardening the IT infrastructure is a must if you want to build a robust architecture that can withstand attacks and meet regulatory standards. Hackers use a variety of cyber-attack strategies to assault information systems and websites on a regular basis.

Information systems, particularly servers, must be fortified to combat the rising number of dynamically emerging cyber-attacks. Hardening is a unique security work in that it is requested by the security team, yet it is frequently carried out by IT Ops. Learn how to automate hardening chores if you're in charge of a hardening project.

Application hardening

The technique of safeguarding applications against local and Internet-based threats is known as application hardening. Application hardening can be accomplished by deleting unnecessary functions or components. We can limit access and ensure that the application is patched on a regular basis. Because we need to make the application accessible to users, maintaining application security is critical. Because most applications have difficulties with buffer overflows in the legal user input area, the only option to protect it against attack is to patch it.

Database hardening

Sensitive information is frequently stored in databases. Data loss or incorrect data could have a detrimental impact on corporate operations. Databases can be used as launching pads for attacks against other systems.

To prevent unauthorised administration of the Listener, you must have a TNS Listener Password (encrypted). Activating Admin Restrictions to prevent certain commands from being executed remotely. TCP Valid Node Checking enables certain hosts to connect to the database server while preventing others from doing so.

Operating system hardening

Operating system hardening is a process that helps to reduce the cyber-attack surface of information systems by disabling non-essential functionality while keeping the essential functionality.

What is our methodology of server hardening?

To ensure secure connection, data encryption options are available.
Unnecessary and potentially dangerous software is removed from the server.
SUID and SGID binaries that are no longer needed are disabled.
SSH hardening has been completed.
Disabling the binaries and other things that you don't desire.
Increasing the Firewall's Robustness
The physical security of the server is ensured.
The application of brute force and SQL injection detection and blocking
Hundreds of further procedures are taken to ensure that your server is powerful and safe against any threat.
Insecure protocols have been deleted, which might expose your personal information such as your password and username.
