Security has been discussed many of times at Astricon. So why talk about it again? Haven't we beaten the topic to death? Why yes we have which is why the talk is titled "Yet Another talk about security and best practices". However, we need to keep the discussion on security going. As system engineers, developers, PBX maintainers etc. become more aware of security concerns the attackers become more desperate. It used to be good enough to have a hard password along with Fail2Ban and that took care of most issues. Today's attackers are a lot more sophisticated, are becoming increasingly clever and we need to stay one step ahead of them. I plan on doing a small review of what has been discussed in the past, the shift in the types of attacks we have seen in our networks and what we are doing to lock down our network to protect against such attacks.
