Secure Web Server

We build open-source software for the web, and we host what we build on open-source servers.

Chxo Secure Web Server (SWS) is a meta-product, based on a minimal installation of either GNU/Linux (in the from of Debian) or FreeBSD. In each case, the base operating system and packages are configured and tuned to provide security and privacy for our operations, and some packages have been compiled specifically to meet the requirements of the software we host. We have also added a small suite of system administration and monitoring tools to keep everything running smoothly and alert us to any unusual activity.

SWS includes a set of policies and procedures that we use when deploying new servers or services, to ensure that everything is set up correctly and consistently, with no surprises.
