 +==== Securing Kiosk ====
 +I think you do not want to be hacked for not paying enough attention to securing your clients. If you use your kiosk in public, you can ruin your business and become a disreputable company/​person. Of course there are many tools out there but I will suggest you only one tool [[http://​|fail2ban]].
 +<WRAP box>
 +> Fail2ban scans log files (e.g. /​var/​log/​apache/​error_log) and bans IPs that show the malicious signs
 +Documentation of fail2ban is not very good but if you dig in you will learn how it works and how you modify it for your needs. Default settings may be enough but for optimizing resources in kiosks you can tweak it. It is easy to install fail2ban from terminal with
 +  aptitude install fail2ban
