Hi!
How can i protect my server?

I already made some security actions as:
• Difficult password for rcon
• Only USGN Users allowed
• Run server as "cs2d" user (not as root)
• and i added some changes from security page on cs2d.com

Please suggest more security changes for my server

Here's the CS2D.com server security page:

Edit: Oooops. Looks like you already read it. Sorry.

Make sure that you use cs2d cmd sv_rconusers! RCon is one of the major weaknesses if someone manages to get the password. This setting makes the rcon password useless unless the attacker also has the login data of one of the specified U.S.G.N. user accounts.

Besides that you can create more strict firewall rules like user oxytamine suggested. I'm not an iptables pro so I can't help you with this but there are several ways to control/limit incoming packets. Google might help.

@user Trotskygrad: On a Linux server? Haha.. good luck with that. (Read the thread again carefully. He was talking about "root" so he's using Linux)

I've heard people refer to the admin accounts on windows as root before so

I guess you could try setting up SELinux for maximum security but that can be a pain.

@user DC: And @user Trotskygrad:
Both of you are wrong.
He's talking about security of his cs2d server not a security for linux.

This was the best part :

@user Shawni: Securing a CS2D server which is running on Linux includes securing the operating system (Linux) itself. So I'm pretty sure that I'm not wrong at all.

He's talking about security of his cs2d server not a security for linux.

He said he is not running his server as root, which implies he is using Linux. Also if you read his later posts you will even see he said he uses Linux! - Meaning you are wrong. user Ghost-Rider is asking for both kinds of security.

Edit: And I seem to be too late.

If possible, add somekind of packet filtering to Linux then allow only CS2D packets. Although I don't know how to achieve this myself, it's a good idea however.

He is from USA. It's probably illegal.
