    Hello, I'm looking to do everything I can to secure my machine.

    Things I've already thought about:
    - elimate any way a clear-text password could be stored on my machine
    - use the plesk firewall
    - use the plesk watchdog module
    - ?

    What what you guys all do?

    Thank you!

    ASL is my answer to that, its all the stuff I normally would do to a box to lock it down.

    Read our HOW TO to configure PLESK/Linux after is installed by hosting company.
    I suggest to secure MORE with ASL as atomicturtle mentioned.
