Hello guys,

I just want to create SSH tunnel account (as normal linux account but even don't need login permission) for users. But I don't know what can i do for security enhancement. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Regards

Install net-analyzer/fail2ban for the SSH server, use keys instead of passwords for authentication, move your SSH server to a non privileged port, disable /home dir per user basis and /bin/bash in your /etc/passwd and you should be ok.

Cheers!
