Based on network layer assessment report with common attacks and existing exploits

Vulnerability Assessment (for application layer):

Customized vulnerability assessment will be performed which will include the servers.

Advanced Penetration Testing:

Custom testing exploits will be developed by our experts based on discovered vulnerabilities. Server Hardening

IPTables Configure:

Iptables is a user-space utility program that allows a system administrator to configure the IP packet filter rules of the Linux kernel firewall, implemented as different Netfilter modules. The filters are organized in different tables, which contain chains of rules for how to treat network traffic packets. Different kernel modules and programs are currently used for different protocols; iptables applies to IPv4, ip6tables to IPv6, ARPtables to ARP, and EBtables to Ethernet frames.

File & LVM encryption Enable:

Install or enable encrypted LVM, which allows all partitions in the logical volume, including swap, to be encrypted. Encrypted Private Directories were implemented, utilizing eCryptfs, in ubuntu as a secure location for users to store sensitive information. The server and alternate installers had the option to setup an encrypted private directory for the first user.

In Ubuntu, support for encrypted home and filename encryption was added. Encrypted Home allowed users to encrypt all files in their home directory and was supported in the Alternate Installer and also in the Desktop Installer via the pressed option user-setup/encrypt-home=true. Official support for Encrypted Private and Encrypted Home directories was dropped in Ubuntu LTS. It is still possible to configure an encrypted private or home directory, after Ubuntu is installed, with the ecryptfs-setupprivate utility provided by the ecryptfs-utils package.

SYSCTL configure with Syscall filtering and block Kexec:

Programs can filter out the availability of kernel syscalls by using the seccomp_filter interface. This is done in containers or sandboxes that want to further limit the exposure to kernel interfaces when potentially running untrusted software. It is now possible to disable kexec via sysctl. CONFIG_KEXEC is enabled in Ubuntu so end users are able to use kexec as desired and the new sysctl allows administrators to disable kexec_load. This is desired in environments where CONFIG_STRICT_DEVMEM and modules_disabled are set, for example. When Secure Boot is in use, kexec is restricted by default to only load appropriately signed and trusted kernels.

OpenDLP is a free and open source, agent- and agentless-based, centrally managed, massively distributable data loss prevention tool released under the GPL. Given appropriate Windows, UNIX, MySQL, or MSSQL credentials, OpenDLP can simultaneously identify sensitive data at rest on hundreds or thousands of Microsoft Windows systems, UNIX systems, MySQL databases, or MSSQL databases from a centralized web application.

OpenDLP has two components:

  1. A web application to manage Windows agents and Windows/UNIX/database agentless scanners
  2. A Microsoft Windows agent used to perform accelerated scans of up to thousands of systems simultaneously.

The web application automatically deploys and starts the agents over Netbios/SMB. When done, it automatically stops, uninstalls, and deletes the agents over Netbios/SMB. For a better overview, it performs the following:

  • Pauses, resumes, and forcefully uninstalls agents in an entire scan or on individual systems
  • Concurrently and securely receives results from hundreds or thousands of deployed agents over two-way-trusted SSL connection
  • Creates Perl-compatible regular expressions (PCREs) for finding sensitive data at rest
  • Creates reusable profiles for scans that include whitelisting or blacklisting directories and file extensions
  • Reviews findings and identify false positives
  • Exports results as XML
  • Writes in Perl with MySQL backend
  • Deploys Windows agents through existing Meterpreter sessions (new in 0.5)

The agent performs the following activities:

  • Runs on Windows 2000 and later systems
  • Writes in C with no .NET Framework requirements
  • Runs as a Windows Service at low priority so users do not see or feel it
  • Resumes automatically upon system reboot with no user interaction
  • Securely transmit results to web application at user-defined intervals over two-way-trusted SSL connection
  • Uses PCREs to identify sensitive data inside files
  • Performs additional checks on potential credit card numbers to reduce false positives
  • It can read inside ZIP files, including Office 2007 and OpenOffice files
  • It limits itself to a percent of physical memory so there is no thrashing when processing large files

Agentless Database Scans:

In addition to performing data discovery on Windows operating systems, Open DLP also supports performing agentless data discovery against the following databases: Microsoft SQL server MySQL

Agentless File System and File Share Scans:

With Open DLP 0.4, one can perform the following scans:

  1. Agentless Windows file system scan (over SMB)
  2. Agentless Windows share scan (over SMB)
  3. Agentless UNIX file system scan (over SSH using sshfs) Identity and Access Management

Single-Sign On:

Users authenticate with Keycloak rather than individual applications. This means that your applications do not have to deal with login forms, authenticating users, and storing users. Once logged-in to Keycloak, users do not have to login again to access a different application.

This also applies to logout. Keycloak provides single-sign out, which means users only have to logout once to be logged-out of all applications that use Keycloak.

Identity Brokering and Social Login:

Enabling login with social networks is easy to add through the admin console. It is just a matter of selecting the social network you want to add. No code or changes to your application is required.

Keycloak can also authenticate users with existing OpenID Connect or SAML 2.0 Identity Providers. Again, this is just a matter of configuring the Identity Provider through the admin console.

User Federation:

Keycloak has built-in support to connect to existing LDAP or Active Directory servers. You can also implement your own provider if you have users in other stores, such as a relational database.

Admin Console:

Through the admin console administrators can centrally manage all aspects of the Keycloak server. They can enable and disable various features. They can configure identity brokering and user federation. They can create and manage applications and services and define fine-grained authorization policies. They can also manage users, including permissions and sessions.

Account Management Console:

Through the account management console users can manage their own accounts. They can update the profile, change passwords, and setup two-factor authentication. Users can also manage sessions as well as view history for the account. If you've enabled social login or identity brokering users can also link their accounts with additional providers to allow them to authenticate to the same account with different identity providers.

Standard Protocols:

Keycloak is based on standard protocols and provides support for OpenID Connect, OAuth 2.0, and SAML.

Authorization Services:

If role-based authorization doesn't cover your needs, Keycloak provides fine-grained authorization services as well. This allows you to manage permissions for all your services from the Keycloak admin console and gives you the power to define exactly the policies you need. Intrusion Prevention Systems

Snort is the foremost Open Source Intrusion Prevention System (IPS). Snort IPS uses a series of rules that help define malicious network activity and uses those rules to find packets that match against them and generates alerts for users. Snort can be deployed inline to stop these packets, as well. Snort has three primary uses: As a packet sniffer like tcpdump, as a packet logger — which is useful for network traffic debugging, or it can be used as a full-blown network intrusion prevention system. VPN

It works in any configuration including remote access, site to site VPNs, Wi-Fi security and enterprise scale access solutions. It has features like load balancing, failover and access controls. It can tunnel IP sub-networks or virtual Ethernet adapters. Open VPN benefits are: Supports perfect forward secrecy, has firewall compatibility and Better Security (256-bit encryption keys).
