- Linux System with golang, iptables/ipsets
Run the bash script (install.sh) to install all the required dependencies.
You will be prompted to insert a domain and the real IP address associated to it so net-Shield will configure for you the first proxydomain (you can see the changes on /etc/nshield/nshield.conf).
To configure proxydomains you need to enable the proxy option on /etc/nshield/nshield.conf (proxy = 1) and be sure that the proxydomain list (on the same conf file) is correct:
proxydomains = [ "sami.pw 22.214.171.124", "example.org 126.96.36.199" ]
After you completed the install with the quickstart script you can call the "config-nshield" commad that will read the nshield.conf and re-configure shield rules based on the new configuration.
Example: I want to enable SSL on sami.pw that i just configured as above:
- Edit /etc/nshield/nshield.conf and set autossl = 1
- On your terminal run:
- You can now see the changes on the Nginx configuration
The domain must point to the net-Shield instance otherwise will fail let's encrypt verification.
Logs are diplayed on: /var/log/nshield.log
How it works
Basically this script is set by default to run every 30 minutes and execute these operations:
- Get latest Bot,Spammers,Bad IP/Net reputation lists and blocks if those Bad guys are attacking your server (Thank you FireHol http://iplists.firehol.org/ )
- Enable basic Anti-DDoS methods to deny unwanted/malicious traffic
- Rate limits when under attack
- Allows HTTP(S) Proxying to protect your site
Tested on Ubuntu 16.04 and 14.04 LTS
