apt-get drush install on Debian

These are the installation instructions that are recommended on Debian. Aegir dependencies (Apache, MySQL, PHP…) are also automatically installed. If you are managing the installation from a remote Windows computer, well-known open source tools for this task are for example PuTTY (a SSH client for command line), and WinSCP (a SFTP client with easy text file editing).

If you wish to install Debian packages over an existing manual install, it's possible. See the Debian upgrade procedures.

Debian packages are uploaded to http://debian.aegirproject.org/ shortly after a release. We eventually want to upload those packages to the official archives, but this will take some adaptation and time to sponsor the packages in.

 

1. Adding the project repositories

Use this command to add the Aegir package "Software Source" repository to your system:

 

echo "deb http://debian.aegirproject.org stable main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/aegir-stable.list

 

To install other versions, see the developer instructions for the debian package.

2. Adding the archive key to your keyring

This repository self-signs packages uploaded to it (and packages uploaded are verified against a whitelist of trusted uploaders) using OpenPGP (GnuPG, to be more precise).

Use these commands to download and add the repository's PGP key, then update the package list on your system:

Icininga on SSL

 

 

This is intended to be an introduction for implementation of stronger authentication and server security focused around the CGI web interface.

There are many ways to enhance the security of your monitoring server and Icinga environment. This should not be taken as the end all approach to security. Instead, think of it as an introduction to some of the techniques you can use to tighten the security of your system. As always, you should do your research and use the best techniques available. Treat your monitoring server as it were the most important server in your network and you shall be rewarded.

Additional Techniques

Stronger Authentication using Digest Authentication . If you have followed the quickstart guides, chances are that you are using Apache's Basic Authentication. Basic Authentication will send your username and password in "clear text" with every http request. Consider using a more secure method of authentication such as Digest Authentication which creates a MD5 Hash of your username and password to send with each request.

Forcing TLS/SSL for all Web Communication . Apache provides TLS/SSL through the mod_ssl module. TLS/SSL provides a secure tunnel between the client and server that prevents eavesdropping and tampering using strong publickey/privatekey cryptography.

Locking Down Apache Using Access Controls . Consider locking down access to the Icinga box to your IP address, IP address range, or IP subnet. If you require access outside your network you could use VPN or SSH Tunnels. This is a easy and strong to limit access to HTTP/HTTPS on your system. Continue reading “Icininga on SSL” »

URL Filtering usng cProfile

cProfiles: Real-Time Website Profiler

 
cProfiles provides the SafeSquid users, the much needed mechanism of classifying web-sites, in one or more categories. Usage is very simple, yet will allow security managers a lot of room, to handle challenges rather inventively.
Over 3 million web-sites have been classified in a variety of categories like news, webmail, adult, porn, arts, etc. Policy makers can create rules to determine if a web-site belongs to one or more categories, and "ADD PROFILE" of their choice, say – "NOT_BUSINESS", and then use this Profile, in any of the other SafeSquid's sections like URL Filter, or MiMe Filter, or Cookie Filter etc. to allow or deny the transaction, as per enterprise policy.
 
Categories:
  • Ads
  • Adult
  • Adult Education
  • Arts
  • Chat
  • Drugs
  • Education
  • Fileshare
  • Finance
  • Gambling
  • Games
  • Government
  • Hacking
  • Hate
  • Highrisk
  • Housekeeping
  • Instant Messaging
  • Jobs
  • Leisure
  • Mail
  • Multimedia
  • News
  • Porn
  • Proxy
  • Search Engines
  • Shopping
  • Social
  • Sports
  • System Utilities
  • Travel
  • Business

How cProfiles works

Policy makers can configure cProfiles to "add a profile" to a request for any website that is listed under one or more categories. Whenever a user requests for any website, the cProfiles module verifies if the website is listed under the specified categories. It first checks its cache for an entry. If the entry is found in the cache, cProfiles adds the profile instantly to the request. If the entry is not found in the cache, the cProfiles module sends a query to SafeSquid's Content Categorization Service (CCS). cProfiles uses DNS technology to query the CCS. This naturally updates all the enroute caching Nameservers. So if you even restart SafeSquid, the resolutions will be quickly retrieved from the nearest DNS provider.
Unlike legacy technologies that forces users to store huge databases, cProfiles caches only 'really visited' websites and therefore, utilizes very little system resources. Since the categorization happens in real-time, users do not have to regularly download updates to keep their database up to date.
The CCS has been initially seeded with a little over 3 Million web-sites. CCS has been built with a unique self-learning technology, that allows it to build a list of web-sites that must be categorized for the benefit of it's users, and CCS then automatically creates the "suggested classifications" for these web-sites, in real-time. These results are then validated by human editors, on an hourly basis, allowing the data to be instantly useable by the real-users.

URL filtering
 
There are three methods available to block unwanted web content:

 

  • Content scanning: this method blocks access to web pages based on the occurrence of “bad” words in the content.
  • Artificial intelligence: a variant on content scanning, intended to render more accurate results.
  • Blacklists: this method blocks access to web pages based on their being listed in a website category to be blocked.

URLfilterDB uses the last method as the fastest and most accurate method for URL filtering available. Navigate to our product comparison page to find out why and how using a blacklist filtering method makes URLfilterDB superior to competitor’s products.
