Configuring Raspberry pi 3 b+ for crypto specific use.

We’re planning to use the raspberry pi to manage your crypto sites. The idea is simple, try not to visit websites using your main laptop. You should have a dedicated machine. This machine, we’re using a raspberry pi 3 b+, is small lightweight and can be powered by a micro usb cable. These are available everywhere and can reuse the sdcard in a different pi.

The concept is simple, everything is interchangeable and should not rely on anything other than the storage of the data. The data is encrypted as well as the drive.

Using this method, I consider it a safer way to browse crypto. You have some flexibility with security, but you will need to enable them manually. Security is always in layers and its up to you to see how many layers you want to go. Ultimately the last thing is the data, it is up to you how much you feel the threat is. Let’s get going…

What you need

  • raspberry pi 3 b+
  • SD card loaded with the stretch-lite image.

What we will do

turn on the firewall on all services
