Support for security such as Firewalls and securing linux
Okay, the next thing I was thinking about… I'm taking a break from reading this article:gerald_clark wrote:Disabling root is a bad idea.
You may need it when all other routes to management fail.

The only thing I've done so far is:
- changed the password to root
created a new user into the root privileges "wheel" section
The article above mentions, creating new partitions to have more of a granular control of permissions and securities.
I'm definitely going to create keys for the root user and the new user I just created requiring a passphrase… I know I want that much security, but… I'm not really THAT paranoid, unless I need to be…
I would like to limit root, as much as possible though… Kind of making it, so the new user I've created is the only one who has complete control of my system besides root…
Thanks for any feedback/advice in advance,
