A safe place to start with

For those who read my recent article about how to secure a CentOS 6 installation, I just bundled the article’s optimisations/enforcements into a small VMware OVF appliance.

Quickly deploy a secured CentOS 6.2 VMware appliance and use it as safe base for you applications. The root password will be shown when you start the machine, and there’s a file that you’ll have to delete in order to make your network work :/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-eth0.

The files are available in the file repository.

File listing

http://bkraft.fr/files/VMware%20Appliances/CentOS%206.2%20Secured
|-- [515M]  centos62secured-disk1.vmdk
|-- [ 143]  centos62secured.mf
`-- [4.7K]  centos62secured.ovf

Import the machine using ovftool:

ovftool http://bkraft.fr/files/VMware%20Appliances/CentOS%206.2%20Secured/centos62secured.ovf vi://username:password@esxiserver.yourdomain.tld
