Lock Linux Server

Linux GEEKS!!

Secure your servers against unauthorized physical access.

Lock your Linux Servers using “vlock” tool.

RHEL admins can install it using –

yum install vlock 

(yes it comes with standard RHEL iso)

Ubuntu admins can install it using –

sudo apt-get install vlock

Once installed you can activate it by just entering “vlock” on your Virtual consoles (expecting that you are running your Linux Servers in runlevel 3)

Here is a small illustration from my machine.
