This started out as a security page and is now evolving into my Macintosh/iOS admin resources page.
Secure Macintosh Practices
Just an ad-hock list of things to better secure a Macintosh from the Big Bad Web.
- Turn on Firewall: System Preferences > Security > Firewall
- I use Little Snitch as an active firewall.
- But I think I would recomment Radio Silence instead, it does the same thing but feel less like watching an ari traffic control screen.
I am using a set of 'beta' software packages that I really like from Objective See. There are lots of choices, these are my recomendations:
- BlockBlock This watches for strange things happening behind the scenes and alerts you.
- RansomWhere? This watches for programs to start compressing and encrypting things without your immediate input.
- OverSight This watches access to camera and microphone.
Privacy Badger for your web browser.
Password manager of choice:
- 1Password and mostly happy with it.
- GPGTools for encrypted email and documents.
I am making my list here, some I've tried some I need t try.
- Termina notifier sending notifications from the command line to all Macs being administered.
