I am new to rackspace and I am looking for someone who can secure my server by doing the following:
Setup useraccount,disable root access.
Close ports except for those that must be open (mysql, port 80 etc)
restrict access to a single IP
Disable SSH keys
Recommendations from you for the following:
To avoid DOS attacks do you recommend installing Nagios, fail2ban, and perhaps even Snort IDS on the servers to keep hackers out.
Basically I need an expert that can LOCK this box down.
We will need CENTOS insalled. I have a rackspace account already setup and ready to go.
I then want a detailed step by step tutorial so that in the event I need to do this again in the future I can follow your guide and do it myself.
Possible Future Project:
I also would like a separate quote from you down the road to setup a load balancing server as well as disaster recovery server. And configure backups. I know Rackspace has allot of this built in but I would like an expert to configure them and recommend the best possible scenarios for each. Don't worry about providing a bid on these items yet. Lets get the secure server in place and then we can discuss these items. I am also considering having someone install plesk or cpanel as well.
