SSH on Port 443 –security implications
Are there any security implications to this? I know we're discouraged from using 'common' ports for SSH, but it seems to me the most straightforward way to get past the work firewall and disallowing password login should make things pretty secure. Besides which, the Linode Lish console listens on port 443, so it can't be that bad, can it?
There might be security implications for your job if you're using this to bypass corporate control policies! At my place this could lead to disciplinary action up to and including termination.
Well, I let Google's mailservers take care of email for me. So I don't have anything else using 443 on my Linode. Sounds like I'm good to go for using that as an additional SSH port then.
Wha – why would you be using Port 443 on e-mails? 443 is HTTPS.
I mean, you could use 443 - but you won't be able to use SSL on your website
