  4. 4. Cruel Reality and Other Issues Dirty COW (CVE-2016-5195) is a privilege escalation vulnerability in the Linux Kernel Why is it called the Dirty COW bug? "A race condition was found in the way the Linux kernel's memory subsystem handled the copy-on-write (COW) breakage of private read-only memory mappings. An unprivileged local user could use this flaw to gain write access to otherwise read-only memory mappings and thus increase their privileges on the system." Y2007 Y2016

And I looked, and rose up, and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, Be not ye afraid of them: remember the Lord, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses. 17. They which builded on the wall, and they that bare burdens, with those that laded, every one with one of his hands wrought in the work, and with the other hand held a weapon. 18. For the builders, every one had his sword girded by his side, and so builded. And he that sounded the trumpet was by me. Nehemiah 4:8-18 Your Vision of Situation

  16. 16. Practices of Security Protection of Kernel Internal Audit Protection of Communications Protection of File Systems and Data Protection of Configuration Files
  17. 17. Practices of Security (Software) 1. Etckeeper - is a revision control system for your /etc directory using bzr, git, hf, or darcs as a back-end. https://github.com/joeyh/etc keeper 2. AIDE - (Advanced Intrusion Detection Environment - Host Based IDS) is a file and directory integrity checker. It creates a database from the regular expression rules that it finds from the config file(s). Once this database is initialized it can be used to verify the integrity of the files. http://aide.sourceforge.net/ 3. Tripwire Software - can help to ensure the integrity of critical system files and directories by identifying all changes made to them. http://www.tripwire.com/ Protection of Configuration Files
  18. 18. Practices of Security 4. Spacewalk is an open source Linux systems management solution that allows you to: manage and deploy configuration files to your systems, distribute content across multiple geographical sites in an efficient manner, inventory your systems. http://spacewalk.redhat.com/ https://fedorahosted.org/spacewalk/wiki/HowToInstall#Settingup Spacewalkrepo 5. Setup a Local Mail Server and Create Server Mail Group. [root@ua /]# cat /etc/aliases root: SecurityOperators@softserveinc.com 6. Use LogWatch is a log parsing program that analyzes and generates daily reports on your system’s log activity. Protection of Configuration Files
  19. 19. Practices of Security (Software) 1. Chkrootkit - locally checks for signs of a rootkit. http://www.chkrootkit.org/ 2. Rkhunter - scanner tool for Linux systems (+need update). 3. ClamAV - antivirus engine for detecting trojans, viruses, malware & other malicious threats. http://www.clamav.net/ 4. Available Repositories Provided by CentOS - these repositories have varying levels of stability, support and cooperation within the CentOS community. Please Verify Your Repo List! https://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories 5. Install additional plugin yum-cron - The package that allows us to do automatic updates via yum (auto-update mechanism). Please Always Update Your Systems! Protection of File Systems and Data
  20. 20. Practices of Security 6. Spacewalk - is a systems management solution allows you to: install and update software on your systems, collect and distribute your custom software packages. 7. Bacula/Bareos - is a set of Open Source, computer programs that permit you (or the system administrator) to manage backup, recovery, and verification of computer data across a network of computers of different kinds. Bacula is relatively easy to use and very efficient, while offering many advanced storage management features that make it easy to find and recover lost or damaged files. Please Backup Your Systems! http://blog.bacula.org/source-download-center/ http://download.bareos.org/bareos/release/latest/ Protection of File Systems and Data
  21. 21. Practices of Security 8. Bacula File Integrity Check is a feature can be used for detecting changes to critical system files similar to what a file integrity checker like Tripwire does. 9. OSSEC - is a Open Source HIDS SECurity. OSSEC watches it all, actively monitoring all aspects of Unix system activity with file integrity monitoring, log monitoring, rootcheck, and process monitoring, writing scripts that take actions in response to security alerts. http://ossec.github.io/ https://atomicorp.com/ , http://wazuh.com/ https://www.alienvault.com/ Protection of File Systems and Data
  22. 22. Practices of Security 10. Secure Partition Mount Options please use in /etc/fstab: noatime,nosuid,noexec,nodev 11. Use Secure Disk Partitioning use for your server: “/boot”, “/”, “/home”, “/var”, “/tmp”, “/usr”, “/opt” Protection of File Systems and Data 12. Prevent Mounting USB Storage in your servers echo "install usb-storage /bin/false" > /etc/modprobe.d/usb- storage.conf 13. Mount “/boot” partition in ‘read-only’ mode use for this in /etc/fstab next options for “/boot”: defaults,nosuid,nodev,ro (manually re-mount as ‘read-write’ for system update)

  24. 24. Practices of Security Protection of Kernel Internal Audit Protection of Communications Protection of File Systems and Data Protection of Configuration Files
  25. 25. Practices of Security (Software) 1. Edit sysctl.conf - is an tweaking feature that reads and modifies the attributes of the system kernel such as its version number, maximum limits, and security settings. 2. Use nscd - is a daemon that provides a cache for the most common name service requests. 4. NTP Client (Chrony) to synchronize the time of your local Linux client machine with NTP server, edit the /etc/ntp.conf file on the client side. Comparison of NTP implementations. 5. Configure Rsyslog with Any Log File Forwarding to other server! Protection of Kernel 3. Configure DNS Client - to configure Linux as DNS client you need to edit or modify /etc/resolv.conf file.
  26. 26. [root@ua /]# cat /etc/sysctl.conf # Kernel sysctl configuration file for Red Hat Linux … # Controls IP packet forwarding net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0 … # Controls source route verification net.ipv4.conf.default.rp_filter = 1 net.ipv4.conf.default.arp_filter = 1 net.ipv4.conf.all.rp_filter = 1 net.ipv4.conf.all.arp_filter = 1 … # Log Martian Packets net.ipv4.conf.all.log_martians = 1 vm.swappiness = 0 net.ipv4.tcp_congestion_control = htcp net.ipv4.tcp_window_scaling = 1 net.ipv4.tcp_timestamps = 1 net.ipv4.tcp_sack = 1 net.ipv4.tcp_fack = 1 net.ipv4.tcp_low_latency=1 …
  27. 27. Practices of Security 6. Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) - is an implementation of a Mandatory Access Control mechanism in the Linux kernel, checking for allowed operations after standard discretionary access controls are checked. SELinux can enforce rules on files and processes in a Linux system, and on their actions, based on defined policies. 7. Applications optimization – Java:Huge Pages, Lan:Multipathing. 8. ELRepo - is a community repository for Enterprise Linux distributions. ELrepo-kernel channel provides the latest Stable Mainline Kernels. http://elrepo.org/tiki/kernel-ml Protection of Kernel SELinux is enabled by default in Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Please use option enforcing or permissive!
  28. 28. Practices of Security 9. Write Custom System Audit Rules (in SELinux) - by default, the audit system records only a few events in the logs such as users logging in, users using sudo, and SELinux-related messages. It uses audit rules to monitor for specific events and create related log entries. It is possible to create personal audit rules! Protection of Kernel [root@ua rules.d]# cat /etc/audit/rules.d/audit.rules # This file contains the auditctl rules that are loaded # whenever the audit daemon is started via the initscripts. # The rules are simply the parameters that would be passed # to auditctl.

  30. 30. Practices of Security (Software) 5. On-Line System Monitoring - for SSH sessions – use Glances is a cross-platform curses-based system monitoring tool written in Python. https://github.com/nicolargo/glances 1. Service Management - Systemd is an init system and system manager that is widely becoming the new standard for Linux machines. Verify your services and DISABLE UNNEEDED! 2. Enable Firewall - Firewalld provides a dynamically managed firewall with support for network/firewall zones to define the trust level of network connections or interfaces. 3. How do I disable IPv6? (Daniel Walsh not recommends) 4. Use Multiple IP Network Interfaces/cards for prevent network performance bottlenecks and improved security. Protection of Communications

  39. 39. Some More Ideas for Us Sending alerts to administrators: [root@ua /]# cat /etc/profile … echo “ALERT on `hostname`: Shell access to your server! Detail information: incident time - '`date` `who`'.” | mail -s "ALERT from `hostname`: Access to your server from IP: `who | cut - d"(" -f2 | cut -d")" -f1`! Please verify this issue and approve (if need)!" SecurityOperators@softserveinc.com … Improve SSH protocol security: [root@ua /]# cat /etc/ssh/sshd_config … # Specifies the ciphers allowed for protocol version 2 Ciphers aes128-ctr, aes192-ctr, aes256-ctr, arcfour256, arcfour128, arcfour
  40. 40. Some More Ideas for Us # Specifies the MAC (message authentication code) algorithms MACs hmac-sha1, umac-64@openssh.com, hmac-ripemd160, hmac-sha2-256, hmac-sha2-512 … Disable reboot using ‘CTRL+ALT+DELETE’ keys: [root@ua /]# systemctl mask ctrl-alt-del.target The CIS-CAT Benchmark Assessment Tool: CIS-CAT is a host-based configuration assessment tool. A Java- based tool that compares the configuration of target IT systems to CIS Benchmarks and reports conformance scores on a scale of 0-100. https://benchmarks.cisecurity.org/downloads/audit-tools/ The OpenSCAP Family Tools: https://www.open-scap.org/tools/
  41. 41. Some More Ideas for Us Monitoring users activity using ‘psacct’ or ‘acct’ tools: If you have lot of users who access your servers frequently in your company and if you wanna to keep an eye on what data they are accessing, what commands they are issuing, how long they have been accessing servers and how much system resources are consumed by them, then psacct or acct are the tools that you should have (starting psacct or acct as service)! Display Statistics of Users Day-wise: [root@ua /]# ac -d Display Time Totals for each User: [root@ua /]# ac -p Print All Account Activity Information: [root@ua /]# sa Use iPerf - The ultimate speed test tool for TCP, UDP and SCTP.

Resources include: • secure configuration benchmarks • automated configuration assessment tools and content • security metrics • security software product certifications The Security Benchmarks program is an independent authority that helps both public and private industry experts collaborate and find consensus on practical cybersecurity solutions. Our resources are used by organizations worldwide to help meet compliance requirements for FISMA, PCI, HIPAA and more.

  50. 50. Analysis of Results (Example) 1.1.1 Create Separate Partition for /tmp (Scored) Profile Applicability: Level 1 Description: The /tmp directory is a world-writable directory used for temporary storage by all users and some applications. Rationale: Since the /tmp directory is intended to be world-writable, there is a risk of resource exhaustion if it is not bound to a separate partition. In addition, making /tmp its own file system allows an administrator to set the noexec option on the mount, making /tmp useless for an attacker to install executable code. It would also prevent an attacker from establishing a hardlink to a system setuid

If the program happened to have a security vulnerability, the attacker could continue to exploit the known flaw. Audit: Verify that there is a /tmp file partition in the /etc/fstab file. # grep "[[:space:]]/tmp[[:space:]]" /etc/fstab Remediation: For new installations, check the box to "Review and modify partitioning" and create a separate partition for /tmp. For systems that were previously installed, use the Logical Volume Manager (LVM) to create partitions. References: AJ Lewis, "LVM HOWTO", http://tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO/
