Shared Server with SSH


Could anyone please point me to some article describing how to secure a shared server, where people have SSH access (like on a shared hosting account where you cannot go out of your own directory, execute some programs, in top you see only your processes, etc). Is there some tutorial / manual on this.

Distribution probably doesn't matter, but I use openSuSE and CentOS.

check out file permissions, ACL's, and SELinux, as well as SSH configurations. A combination of those will get the job done.


security, ssh
