Raspbian adjusted PIXEL for security reasons - no SSH by default more [Full Guide]

Raspbian we know is the officially supported operating system for the raspberry PI. It is based on Debian GNU/Linux Jessie and the new desktop interface PIXEL was recently bought the OS. In the latest update, not only the usual bugs are cleaned up. There are important changes that PIs should know fans and users of the raspberry.

why the changes

because they are quite simply necessary. The raspberry PI to the user as comfortable as possible make it. It is taken as a standard account and pi / raspberry login and password are. Is dumb if it stays that way and someone gets access to the raspberry PI. Access is even here because so far also SSH was enabled by default. The only protection in this case, was my own net, should be PI behind your home router operated the raspberry and the corresponding port is not transmitted.

now it is also so that the raspberry PI very attractive for IoT projects (Internet of things / Internet of things) is. The tiny over the Internet should be accessible and you have not changed the password, then this raspberry is a field day. Of course, the user sudo has pi via also root rights… I have at this point don’t continue to argue.

what has changed now?

first of all SSH will no longer be immediately enabled at Raspbian pixels by default. So that the remote access is prevented and that’s a good thing. Who enabled SSH aware again, think in the password – it is changed in this case. In the future, you wirrst even warned if SSH is enabled and the password is not changed. The warning follows currently only in English, but is in any case password . This step by the developer to protect of new users and to improve the security is definitely to be welcomed.

Warnung! Du hast SSH aktiviert, aber das Passwort nicht geƤndert.

warning! You have enabled SSH, but not changed the password.

change the password via the command line with the command passwd . Type simply times purely, go to enter and just change your password. Or you are using the GUI raspberry-PI-configuration again.

Via Raspberry-Pi-Konfiguration SSH aktivieren und deaktivieren

via raspberry-PI configuring SSH enable and disable

who would like to enable SSH, can do that via raspi-config (command line), via the GUI raspberry-PI configuration in pixels, or a file. You put a file (regardless of content) ssh in the directory / , then the service SSH start is enabled.

the latest image is available on the the project download page. Update existing Jessie installations to the usual Debian type:

to update your existing Jessie image with all the bug fixes and these new security changes, type the following at the command line:

  • sudo apt-get update

  • sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

  • sudo apt-get install-y pprompt (das installiert ein kleines Paket) , which is probably responsible for the password warning)

as you can see the thing? Is the convenience victims along the security measure?

Nice PI-constellation
