Could you hack this setup? Could anyone?
Posted on 2009-03-31
If I really wanted to be anonymous and free of worry, I'd do this:
BIOS Password using fingerprint biometrics-> NO HARD DISK INSTALLED -> LiveCD OS -> REMOVABLE USB WiFi to net -> IKE over VPN -> Firewall/Router Filter USB WiFi MAC Address -> TrueCrypt -> Terminal Server -> 128 bit encrypted RAR -> Putty.exe -> Putty SSH over VNC -> FileVault -> Mac OSX Workstation-> FileVault ->Removable USB thumbdrive -> 256 bit AES encrypted -> disk image -> 128bit AES -> Password Protected Archive -> Password protected Microsoft Office documents -> Codes to the nukes
I would also do the following to cause slow the attacker just a tad bit more:
Windows Terminal Server:
Terminal Server will appear to be configured to be something simple, such as a print server that was accidentally broadcast to the internet.
Terminal Server will be setup on a Virtual Machine, and have several other "mock" servers connected as well. These other servers will not trust the "Print Server"
Encrypted Archive containing putty.exe will be stored in a hidden folder that is constantly modified, such as System32 print driver folder
Terminal Server's purpose is so appear as "low hanging fruit that is easy for picking", thus creating the illusion of vulnerability and also an easy method of viewing "hackers" in action.
Terminal Server will not use Administrator as user name and password for the password to ensure the "low fruit" is recognized.
Terminal Server will only open port 3389 will be available. All other ports are closed to the WAN.
Random photo folder (cats being silly, demotivational posters, etc.) will be placed on Terminal Server desktop in last attempt to keep hacker logged on long enough.
Use a minimum of 12 characters per password using special characters only accessible using multiple keys (ie. user name: ÐÆß) This would be Unicode character set.
All archives and images will have the file extension altered to .tmp and marked as hidden.
When I started writing this, I had no intention of making it this long. I guess my creativity started flowing!
