Linux security hardening on a Matomo installation
2022-11-03, 16:00–16:45 (Europe/Berlin), Livestream Room 2
Language: English

Let's see some good security practices that can be applied on a server (best on: GNU/Linux) to proactively protect a web application like Matomo, and how-to avoid common mistakes.

The talk will start around the Unix and GNU/Linux philosophy of "minimal privileges" and continuing with a whole series of facts about Matomo that it would be best to know in order to best take care of the web application from a sysadmin point of view, and also from the perspective of a Matomo SuperUser. Practical solutions will be provided.

The talk is not suitable for an audience that has never seen a command line, thought it can still be interesting.
