Tomorrow marks the ONE year anniversary of Cyber Hui's Tech Tip Tuesday.  Thanks to Jake Ross, Jason Yeo and whoever else contributed.

This week's TTT focuses on Securing Samba.

Samba is an Open Source/Free Software suite that provides seamless file and print services to SMB/CIFS clients." Samba is freely available, unlike other SMB/CIFS implementations, and allows for interoperability between Linux/Unix servers and Windows-based clients.

The following articles provide guidance on securing Samba.

How to Secure Samba (dated, but still relevant)

Securing a Samba File and Print Server

Secure SMB Connections

Linux command to check for guest access to your shares.
grep -i "guest ok = yes" /etc/samba/smb.conf

Linux command to check for SMB client signing
grep signing /etc/samba/smb.conf

If you have a Tech Tip you want to share, send them to info@cyberhui.org and we'll get them out next #TechTipTuesday.
