I'm struggling trying to understand NAS security. Can you give me a brief
and basic explanation of NAS security and how to implement that security
Very briefly, you should evaluate NAS as a network that includes the NAS server, NFS (or CIFS) protocols, the associated LAN and the risks and vulnerabilities of such a system. The risks would be from platform vulnerabilities, network attached devices, open ports on various platforms and access points from public networks to the NAS environment.
