Improving your NFS server security

NFS (Network file system) allows hosts to mount remote partitions (from
other systems) and use them as local files. NFS is very easy to configure,
but some aditional steps are necessary to improve its security. The default
directory used to export file system is the /etc/exports.

  • Restrict the directories to be exported.
  • Restric the IPs that will be able to access the directories.
  • Restric root access to your files.
