Forgive my fundamental lack of knowledge about security For a home user, what could be the most automated and secure hardware/software setting to secure devices (other than switching the devices off)? Having lets say iot devices which in my opinion are:
raspberry pi-like devices
Now I know that xbox and windows phones are closed systems, but from what I have recently heard by justice dept-security specialists it doesn't matter how closed these devices are they are all hackable especially when they were using wifiAP/tethering/developer modes at least at some point in lifetime.
So what I'm considering as a paranoid but automated setting:
Norton core/ Bitdefender box
Bro IDS/Suricata or other log analyzer on some raspberry pi.
VPN on the end router
Maybe a traffic analyzer/sniffer/ids on the other side of the vpn.
Phone number changed every month or so
Some total security software- bitdefender? Norton?
Some bulk blocklist for the firewall? Where to get one if those are generally available?
My biggest security danger that I'd like to defend from is not typical malware from pirated software or porn sites or other typical places where I can catch it. Also not a fake bank phising messages (probably). I'm not that scared of typical mass automated malware that is obviously known. My deal is defending from direct attacks through lte connection to retrieve photos, films from the camera, messages, keystrokes, passwords, financial activity etc. Worst case scenario is the supposed "no trace" attacks to defend from
