  9. σχετικά πρόσφατα βρέθηκε το λογισμικό Share USB dongles που μπορεί να αντιγράψει και να ανοίξει την απομακρυσμένη πρόσβαση στο κλειδί. Μπορεί επίσης να είναι μια επιλογή για σας; Λοιπόν, ή για μεγάλο χρονικό διάστημα γνωστό λογισμικό Flexihub με το οποίο μπορείτε να έχετε απομακρυσμένη πρόσβαση σε ένα κλειδί άδειας χρήσης ή να το ανοίξετε στο Virtual Machine.
  10. Πιθανότατα, μην επαναφέρετε, αλλά αξίζει να δοκιμάσετε με το OnTrack EasyRecovery. Θα είναι φθηνότερο από το να το δώσει σε άλλους για αποκατάσταση. γιατί κατά πάσα πιθανότητα δεν θα πετύχουν. Αυτό είναι ένα μεγάλο πρόβλημα για την SSD.

  13. Compliance Report using Azure Policy Azure Policy is a powerful tool for Azure Governance. With Azure Policy we can define rules for all Azure Subscriptions the we manage. We can use this rules for simple limitation actions, like permitting only specific VM Series and Sizes that can be created and also more complex rule sets that helps you standardize the whole Azure deployment. At my previous posts, we learned How to limit the Azure VM Sizes and How to enforce tags for resources creation At the current post we will learn how to use Azure Policy to have a compliance report for our deployment. We will learn this by using an example. Then we will create two Virtual Networks and we will add a Network Security Group only to the first one. Finally we will use the Policy to audit whether the Subnets have assigned the NSG or Not. First we need two Virtual Networks. You can create the Virtual Networks using the Azure Portal or using ARM template, like mine from my Github account: https://github.com/proximagr/ARMTemplates/blob/master/2vnets.json After applying the template you will have two VNETs like that: Then we will a Network Security Group (NSG) only to the MyVNET01 Virtual Network. Again using Azure Portal, PowerShell or my ARM Template for NSG Assign the NSG to the MyVNET01 VIrtual Network Add the Policy Go to Azure Policy -> Definitions and click the “+ Policy definition” to create a new policy definition. At the New Policy definition page, select the subscription (location) that the policy will be saved, then add a name. in this case we will use the sample policy template from Microsoft docs so I will add the same name. Copy the policy Json text from https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/governance/policy/samples/nsg-on-subnet and paste it at the POLICY RULE below and Save. At the “effect” part of the Json, change the “deny” to “audit”. If you search for “NSG” you will see our new policy definition, ready to be assigned. Click on the definition’s name to open it and press Assign. I will just target the “ComplianceReport” Resource Group At the parameters, I added the Resource ID of the NSG, “MyNSG01” Evaluate the results To check the compliance, go to Policy – Compliance page and search for nsg. You have to wait for about 15 minutes for the compliance policy to evaluate the resources. If you search “nsg” you will see that the “Audit NSG on Subnet” policy is 50% compliant. Click on the policy’s name to view more details. The assignment details page will open where we can see what resources are not compliant. Click on the three dots (…) next to the non-compliant subnet and select “view compliance details” to check why this resource is not compliant. The compliance details reports that the value is null and what the required (target) value must be. If you want to trigger an on-demand compliance check, you need to make a POST request. You can follow my post Validate Azure Resource Move with Postman to create the access Token and then use it to make a POST request to the Resource Group sung this POST: https://management.azure.com/subscriptions/{subscriptionId}/resourceGroups/{YourRG}/providers/Microsoft.PolicyInsights/policyStates/latest/triggerEvaluation?api-version=2018-07-01-preview Source: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/governance/policy/concepts/effects https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/governance/policy/samples/nsg-on-subnet https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/governance/policy/how-to/get-compliance-data#evaluation-triggers The post Compliance Report using Azure Policy appeared first on Apostolidis IT Corner.

  20. Καλησπέρα, θέλουμε να κάνουμε στην εταιρεία αναβάθμιση των υποδομών. Από εμπειρία τι είναι καλύτερο να προχωρήσουμε σε υλοποίηση Exchange ή να πάμε σε Office 365 που δίνει 50GB+50GB email χώρο +1TB για αποθήκευση αρχείων. Δεν υπάρχει αντίστοιχος εξοπλισμός hardware. Η λύση θα αφορά 400 χρήστες με office εγκατεστημένο στους υπολογιστές τους και συνολική χωρητικότητα e-mail 190GB. Τι θα προτείνατε και γιατί;;; Η γνώμη μου είναι η δεύτερη λύση, αλλά μήπως κάνω λάθος, γιατί έχει σταθερό κόστος, περίπου 1000€/μήνα, αλλά δεν έχεις θέματα χωρητικότητας, back-up, διαθεσιμότητος κλπ.
  21. Καλησπέρα, Έχουμε το παρακάτω υποθετικό σενάριο: Μια εταιρία έχει 10 servers που βρίσκονται in the wild, σε data center, στο azure, on premise πελατών, και γενικά δεν είναι κάπου συγκεντρωμένοι. Όταν ένας programmer θέλει να συνδεθεί σε 3 server α) στην καλύτερη περίπτωση θα πρέπει να μπει κάποιος σε 3 διαφορετικά srv και να ανοίξει 3 φορές τον ίδιο user. Και στην χειρότερη περίπτωση β) να του δώσουν ένα admin account και να μπει όπου θέλει, ακόμα και στα υπόλοιπα που δεν έχει καμία δουλειά εκεί. Από αυτό προκύπτουν διάφορα προβλήματα διαχείρισης. Π.χ. όταν φύγει ο εν λόγο programmer άντε βρες που του είχες δώσει access και άντε μάζεψε το. Μην μιλήσω για άλλα διαχειριστικά πράματα όπως το patching π.χ. Με δεδομένο ότι έχουμε 365 & azure account τι μπορούμε να κάνουμε για να μπορούμε να δίνουμε κεντρικά access σε users σε συγκεκριμένους srv ? Υ.γ το active dir είναι hq.etairia.gr και το 365 είναι στο etairia.gr οπότε o win user είναι user@hq.etairia.gr και το mail του είναι user@etairia.gr.

  24. At the previous post we created an Azure Front Door to scale our web apps across Azure Regions and also publish them only through the Front Door’s URL. At this post we will create Web Application Firewall (WAF) rules, to protect our web apps. To add WAF functionality to the Front Door we need first to create WAF rules and then attach them to the Front Door Create the WAF Rule From the Azure Marketplace search for WAF and create a Web Application Firewall At the “Create a WAF policy” wizard select “Global WAF (Front Door) for policy, provide the subscription and resource group, give a name for the policy and select if you want it to be created enabled or disabled. At the next step select if the policy will prevent the action or just detect and report it. You can change this later too. You can provide a Redirect URL for rules that support redirection. The default status code is 403 but we can change it to e.g. 404. We can also add a custom response body. The next step is the rule. We can select one or more predefined rule sets and then customize at will. To customize, expand the rule set and select a rule. You can enable / disable the rule and you can change the action to Allow, Block, Lod or Redirect. WAF Custom Rule The next step is the custom rules. There’s a lot to customise here. First are the rule type settings. Select status of the rule, enabled or disabled. Select the Rule type between Match and Rate limit. If you select rate limit you will be prompt to set rate limit and threshold. The final rule tupe setting is to set the priority of the rule. Next is the Conditions (If this) and the action (then that). The condition can be Geolocation, IP address, Size or String. After selecting the Match Type the rest options are altered accordingly. The action can be Allow traffic, Deny traffic, Log traffic only or Redirect traffic For the demo I created a rule that will Deny all traffic from The Netherlands, because I can test it from an Azure VM located at the West Europe Region. The next step is to associate the rule to the Front Door. After that assign Tags if needed and create the rule. Once the Rule is ready, a “Front Door WAF policy” resource will be at the selected Resource Group. Inside the Front Door, at the Web application firewall section, you can review the assigned rules. Test 1 From an Azure VM at West Europe Region, I tried to access the Front Door’s URL and we can see my custom 403 body text! Test 2 From my Computer I tested a typical SQL Injection attack from https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Testing_for_SQL_Injection_(OTG-INPVAL-005) . Again my custom 403 page! The post Use Web Application Firewall (WAF) Rules with the Front Door to protect your app appeared first on Apostolidis IT Corner.
