Greetings fellow Linux security enthusiasts,

Interested in becoming a LinuxSecurity contributor, but need an article topic idea and some guidance to help you get started? 

We’re looking for contributors with an understanding of Linux firewalls who can help provide insight into how firewalls can be implemented and configured to improve the security of a Linux system.

If you would like to contribute an article on this topic, we suggest that you explore:

  • Limitations of firewalls, and the the importance of taking a defense-in-depth approach to securing a Linux system
  • Tips and advice for using firewalls to secure a Linux system
  • How using a web application firewall (WAF) can improve security
  • Best practices for securely configuring and maintaining firewalls
