- The Network File System (NFS) was developed to allow the
computers to mount a disk partition on a remote system as if
it could be a local disk, and thereby allowing fast, seamless
sharing of files across a network.
- NFS Security: a client is supposed to have access to a file
in a remote directory on the server.
- The first step is mount access, where client attempts to
approach a server
- The file list, name or IP for the client pc's are
involved, and exposed to a share point
- if the client's profile (IP) matches with the one listed
in the host, then client is allowed to mount.
- The mounted client will have the access to the files
with rw options.
- This mounting is breached by the hackers
- Systems Like Samba , Andrew , Coda offers the similar
functionality of NFS
- Samba : provides file services to windows clientsambamanas9
