Abstract

It may look similar, but Mac OS X Server has some very different functionality from Mac OS X Client. The differences lie in the fact that Mac OS X Server, like most other servers, is used to share data. That data is shared across a variety of protocols, according to the type of data being shared. Therefore, it naturally follows that you will need to take additional precautions to properly secure Mac OS X Server and on a per-service basis. In this chapter, we’ll primarily focus on the services that are specific to Mac OS X Server and how to secure them, paying attention to where the best practices differ from Mac OS X Client.
