Abstract [en]

Creating and maintaining servers for hosting services in a secure and reliable way is an important but complex and time-consuming task. Misconfiguration and lack of server maintenance can potentially make the system vulnerable. Hackers can exploit these vul­nerabilities in order to penetrate into the system internals and cause damage. Having a standard architecture/configuration supporting the needed services saves time and re­sources while it reduces security risks. A server architecture protected by a security policy can secure the integrity and quality of the overall services. This research demon­strates building a secure server architecture protected by a security policy. To achieve this a security policy and a checklist was designed and combined with a host based IDPS, a NMS and a WAF.
