General

To ensure a smooth and secure operation we recommend to perform a security audit of the Cryptshare server at regular intervals. This is to ensure that the Cryptshare server application and the confidential information it hosts are located in a server environment that is exposed to as few risks as possible.

Checklist

In accordance with the Least Privilege principle, access to systems and directories should be restricted as much as possible:

  • Only as many people should be granted access to the Cryptshare server as is absolutely necessary for its operation.
  • Read access to the directories used by Cryptshare (see article Default Installation Paths) should be limited
    • to the users root and csuser and the group csgroup on Linux
    • and on Windows to administrator users.
  • Virtual appliances should be configured so that the Cryptshare directories are not accessible via the administration console or by accessing the virtual hard disk.
