Physical Access To Linux Systems

From a Physical Security (PHYSSEC) perspective, problems do not really begin until attackers have their hands on a machine. Having suitable access controls to prevent direct access and policies in place to prevent social engineering will help ensure that attackers are kept at a safe distance.

Linux is a robust OS, but it is still vulnerable to hardware dangers that may lead to damage on its physical drives or power losses that may cause data corruption. Therefore, in addition to access controls, server rooms should include the following items to ensure integrity and availability and provide protections from power outages, power anomalies, floods, and so on:

• Adequate air conditioning for all servers at peak utilization

• Sufficient power, UPSs, and PDUs

• Raised flooring
