How to Secure SSH

In this post, you will learn how to secure SSH on your Bare Metal Server.

Securing SSH on your server is quick and easy, to secure the server , we would disable direct root login. That could be done via  sshd_config file.

Here Protocol 2 needs to be used which is more secure.

Refer the following steps for the same:-

1)      vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config
