At 3:02 he gets to the "system security hardening options" screen and only chooses to disable sendmail.

That's when I stopped watching. I choose:

Code:
Disable process dubugging facilities for unprivledged users
Ramndomize the PID for newly created processes
Disallow Dtrace destructive-mode

And deal with sendmail through /etc/rc.conf:

Code:
sendmail_enable="NO"

(Which does not turn it off.)

A pf rule deals with preventing WAN access.

I wanted to make it have less steps, about the pid what kind of malicious app that a new user would run and if there is one for freebsd which i dunno , on my pc i select these option for good measure dont think i will have any problems anyway. My home internet file server runs openbsd anyway lol :)

Less is not always better, christhegeek.

If anything on that list is important I would say it's:

Code:
Disable process dubugging facilities for unprivledged users

This is what I base that on:


If that's your video I'd Edit that into it if I were you. I didn't watch the whole thing though.


To be honest I just wanted to make sure somebody hadn't stolen mine, which was not the case. :rolleyes:

When you make an install on a vm you don't think about hardening options but of course you are right.

I think doas is needed anyway octopkg uses doas if i remember correctly

I also dont like "Select all these applications they gonna be useful"

If someone blindly follow the video who has no idea about FreeBSD etc.., he will not learn anything from the fact that the explanations are missing. Example: Why installing both security/sudo and security/doas ?

I stopped watching at the 13 second mark when the terrible music started. Sorry, i can't watch videos with that kind of music.
Just turn the music off and end of discussion......I did that :)
Next time I would recommend some new age or classic like The Four Seasons (Vivaldi)

Seriously. Its a great video christhegeek
