I've a problem to solve and I hope some of you may help me.
A friend of me, who are basically ignorant with computer, have high security concern about his computer. I convinced him to quit Windows and go to Linux.
The perfect distro form him is Ubuntu, but Ubuntu don't have a security level like openBSD. and I'm not a full skilled computer security technician myself.
So, I try to figure out what would be the most secure computer/network configuration simply available.
My idea is :
modem connect to a router, connect to a computer with a secure distro like openBSD with a bridge network connection to another computer with Ubuntu on it.
would it be a good idea? would the bridge connection would stop any potential intruder, because they would be stop by openBSD, or should I learn how to make a firewall with a computer?
