    Automate management of firewall rules for Docker containers

    Look into ufw (or iptables/nftables if you want to go deeper) to restrict outbound network access. Note though that Docker containers won't respect host firewall rules by default, so I created whalewall to easily manage container firewall rules: https://github.com/capnspacehook/whalewall

  • hub

    Main repository for crowdsec scenarios/parsers (by crowdsecurity)

    I use their free plan so I can't tell about any other plan. In order to protect all your services, you just have to deploy Crowdsec once, give it access to the logs of all your existing services and set up the relevant bouncers (reverse proxy and probably Cloudflare). You must also give it the relevant collections from https://hub.crowdsec.net/ such as https://hub.crowdsec.net/author/crowdsecurity/collections/nextcloud

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.
