Servers provide a wide variety of critical services, including database and file sharing services. These guidelines can help you install, configure and maintain secure servers.

Organizations rely on the servers in their IT networks to provide a wide variety of services to internal and external users, including email, database, infrastructure management and file server functions. Servers are the software applications that make information available over the Internet and other networks. A file server, for example, provides file sharing services enabling users to access, modify, store and delete files. A database server provides database services for Web applications on Web servers. Many servers also store or process sensitive information for the organization’s internal users.

Since their servers perform so many basic functions, organizations have a fundamental interest in implementing and maintaining secure server operations. This document provides NIST guidelines for installing, configuring and maintaining secure servers.
