    There are literally entire books on this kind of thing, and you'd likely need to read at least five to get a decent understanding of how this topic. This question is way too broad for a StackExchange site. – Polynomial Jul 31 '13 at 9:16

  • @tamil_arvu If it was that easy to secure a webserver then there would be so few hacking cases and the security industry would have suffered from it :) – HamZa Jul 31 '13 at 12:20

Look at hardening checklists from NIST (https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/ncp/repository) or hardening benchmarks from Centre for Internet Security (http://CISecurity.org).

Harden your operating system, harden your application server, securely develop your application, restrict user access, test your security controls.

As @polynomial says above, your question is very broad. Look at guidance from the above sites and identify what will work for your requirements.


Hardening RPM based distros link

Take a look at this guide if you are using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Part 1

always keep in mind that security is a ongoing processs and that there is no final state!
