ERPNext: Securing an installation, any existing documentation?

Something I found rather curious is that ERPNext doesn’t seem to have any official documentation on how best to secure an instalaltion/instance of ERPNext. No relevant documentation on recommended file permissions, best practices etc especially considering this is a system that has a frontend open to the web.

We use Odoo as well as a few other systems currently and they all have something dedicated to this.

Any pointers from ERPNext veterans on recommended steps for security?

Good question Neal -

Just my 2 cents, much on this topic already exists that applies to ERPNext too (like most any other web-facing software product.)

Here’s a digestible intro to ‘external’ threats and steps to harden against them https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Learn/Server-side/First_steps/Website_security

A web search on ‘Linux security best practices’ will land you references like this https://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/linux-security.html

Lots to ponder, the new year is as good a time as any for an audit review!?
