Edited: Based on private feedback to improve Q specificity.
The public wifi is typical of that provided by libraries, airports and other public spaces that re-directs a browser to sign up or login via username and password. The RPi will be operating RPi OS and used as a basic desktop (browsing, streaming video, image/audio editing) connected to wifi 24/7.
Basic security measures.
- SSH disabled.
- Default username and password changed.
- UFW installed and enabled.
I'm security conscious enough to not be concerned about malware/phishing/packet interception. My main concern, being unfamiliar with the RPi OS, will be about network vulnerabilities/port intrusions.
Will the measures be enough to reduce risk of intrusion to the level of a Windows 10 system 'out of the box' connected to public wifi in the same way?
