Securing Zope and Plone Against the Big, Bad Internet

Common practices for operating Zope and Plone create some unnecessary security exposure. Zope's security framework and recent Plone improvements provide a lot of coverage, but the principle of defense-in-depth requires that we also operate the service itself with the fewest possible privileges and the best possible use of firewalling and authentication tools. We hope to introduce system integrators to the basic security principles of least-privileges and defense-in-depth and show how they apply to filesystem permissions and ownership, ports and firewalls, service startup, and authentication.
