After the era of the NSA Leaks, decentralized systems and self managed servers are gaining more attention. Many system administrators are looking for ways to implement systems that are safe, secure, and easy to use. The common goals shared by all of them resolve around privacy and protection of end-users data.
With this in mind, if you are trying to move away from Apache Web Server or looking for a lightweight Web Server such as Nginx, here is what we recommend: Hiawatha Web Server. Designed with security in mind, Hiawatha is a lightweight and highly secure Web Server, in both: code and features. It is capable of handling large number of requests while protecting your back-end servers against SQL injections, XSS, CSRF attacks and exploit attempts.
