Chapter 4. Securing Your Servers (Locking the Barn)

Chapter 4. Securing Your Servers (Locking the Barn)


The Smiths lock their house at night (we’ve heard some of their reasons), but what about the barn? Of course they lock that, too, and the reason is simple. The barn holds the resources and tools they use for their daily tasks. The family couldn’t survive long this far away from a town without those resources, so they take precautions to protect them from threats. The livestock is brought in each night and placed in stalls, the horse’s shoes are checked, and the saddle and bit are checked and oiled and then hung on a nearby peg. Some food and supplies are kept in the pantry in the main house, but the bulk of the long-term food stores are kept out in the barn’s storage areas. These, too, are locked and frequently visited to check on the condition of the storage and the contents.

Many of the things done to protect the house also cover the barn and storage sheds. John’s shotgun is loaded and ready (with the safety on, of course, because of the children), even when no danger seems imminent. Locks on doors are simple and easy but provide protection to all areas where they are installed, and the fences and walls surround the barn as well as the house.
