Securing NFS - Tunneling NFS over SSH

  • HowtoForge (Posted by falko on Sep 27, 2006 10:57 AM EDT)

The goal of this howto is building an NFS server that works on an SSH tunnel. This way all traffic between your hosts and the file server is encrypted and thus more secure. Normally you should enter a password every time you try to establish an SSH connection but since we could be mounting at bootup we will use ssh-keygen to create a keypair so we can login without entering a password. We will, however, limit that login session to executing just one command.

The only thing stopped me from leaving Quod Libet, in favor of Mesk was the lack of tray integration.
