Configure server security best practices before you deploy to save time and harden your Linode from unauthorized access. Linode’s Secure Your Server One-Click App takes some of the best practices outlined in our How to Secure Your Server Guide and lets you set those configurations in the Linode Cloud Manager before you hit “Create”. Perfect for Linux beginners and pros alike, this app is designed to make securing your server easy and accessible.
Secure Your Server allows you to set up the following configurations before deployment:
- Create limited sudo user credentials
- Add SSH public key
- Disable root login over SSH
- Linode API token
- Add a domain
- Enable email from your Linode’s domain
- Adding a new or existing Block Storage volume
