The main idea of this guide is the disabling of the webUI with an inititialisation script and a cron job to prevent remote deletion of the ZFS snapshots that guarantee data immutability. The key points are: Rely on ZFS snapshots to guarantee data immutability Reduce the surface of attack to the minimum When the setup is finished, disable all remote management interfaces Remote deletion of snapshots is impossible even if all the credentials are stolen.
