Dear all you StakeOP’s out there,
today I’d like to present to you the first security script concerning the operation of a cardano-node.
The command-line script checks if your system needs updates, checks your ssh configuration, checks your active connections and your open ports with an aim to provide you with a fast solution to check your node setup - and to check if your node setup might have been modified.
Output information is written to a pool.security file for inspection.
The script can be found on github: https://github.com/stablepool/pool_check
If you have any checks to add - please feel free to contact me or write an issue on github. I hope this script is usefull to you operators out there in providing a stable staking experience!
I hope to extend this script in the future to bring more secure node operation to the cardano blockchain.
