In the current technological development the majority of information exchange processes in the form of exchanging digital data compared to physical data, this also forces an increase in the security side of the server as a data storage area and that provides services and access to stored data two factor security. Services on the server include Web Servers, FTP Servers, DHCP Servers, File Servers, Proxy Servers, etc. When talking about security on a server, it takes at least 2 types of security systems, namely the intrusion detection system, and intrusion prevention system. With the two types of security systems, which are able to detect and take preventive actions against attacks on the system. In the meantime, perhaps you need to try the two factor authentication as well, especially for your own personal digital security.
One tool that is able to cover both types of security systems that are capable of detecting and simultaneously preventing an attack is Artillery. This tool will act as a system that will detect attackers before they have the opportunity to attack the system as a whole. Artillery itself is an opensource based tool with the Python programming language.
In the Artillery configuration file, there are many configuration options that will be activated according to the desired security system requirements. Following are the steps for installing Artillery on Ubuntu 16.04:
Cloning the repository from the BinaryDefense’s repository using git.
After the cloning process is complete, enter the artillery folder and check whether the results of the cloning process are correct.
Since Artillery uses the Python programming language, the installation will use the python application with the #python artillery.py command.
When the installation process is complete and there is no error message, the artillery is ready to use using the default settings. To check whether the port emulated by the artillery has been successfully created can use the netstat command.
Settings from Artillery can be seen and changed in the var/artillery/config file.
