Self-Hosting Security Guide for your HomeLab

When most people think about self-hosting services in their HomeLab, they often think of the last mile. By last mile I mean the very last hop before a user accesses your services. This last hop, whether that’s using certificates or a reverse proxy, is incredibly important, but it’s also important to know that security starts at the foundation of your HomeLab.Today, we’ll work our way up from hardware security, to OS, to networking, to containers, to firewalls, IDS/IPS, reverse proxies, auth proxies for authentication and authorization, and even lean in to an external provider like Cloudflare.
