I've decided I'd set up some extremely basic security on my laptop (running Debian GNU/Linux - unstable); so I've decided to follow the "Securing Debian Manual", along with "Linux Security Howto" and anything which seemed of interest from LinuxSecurity. Long story short, most 'general' security guides recommend the configuration of the limits.conf file.
However, whilst I have no problem understand items such as "nproc", "maxlogins", I can't generalize for all the other items described in the limits.conf manual page.
Nothing a google search can't handle; however, even understanding what the items mean, I can't figure out proper limits. I'm the only person actually using the laptop, I don't run SSH on it (but I *might*, one day).
So what I'm basically humbly asking for is some `copy/paste` work of your /etc/security/limits.conf file.
