CNT5605 — 2011 Fall
Group Assignment 5
Journals due Friday, October 14

Assignment: Webmin

Your objective is to set up webmin on your Debian machine.

You can find the current distribution at It's probably better to use the Debian package rather than do a source install, but I will leave that decision up to you.

After you install webmin, improve the security in two steps: (1) first, move the webserver to a non-obvious port about 30,000; (2) set up port knocking to hide the webserver. Please document the knock sequence in your writeup.

A journal is due for this assignment. Make sure that you document in your journal all of the steps that you went through, following the guidelines on the class home page.

Please turn in a printed copy of this assignment at the beginning of class on Friday, October 14.
