Bitcoin Mining OPSEC and Privacy Guide by Lili
Operations security (OPSEC) is one of the most important considerations for all bitcoin and cryptocurrency users. But due to the complexity of their operations, cryptocurrency miners face much larger OPSEC considerations than average investors. Nearly all large mining institutions have developed internal protocols and best practices that guide the security of their operations. But small-scale hosted or at-home miners typically have to fend for themselves to develop and maintain proper OPSEC. The only way for most retail miners to learn about threat vectors, best security practices, and general mining security information is by mapping out a model suited for them through countless hours browsing blogs, discussion forums, social media threads, and videos.
This guide is intended to serve as a starting point for all retail miners to understand the full scope of mining OPSEC considerations. The information in this manual is not meant to be used as a handbook for how to start mining. Instead, this document should be used only as a mining security and privacy educational resource.
There is no definitive right or wrong way to approach OPSEC. OPSEC is a spectrum, the precautions required will depend on a miner’s risk tolerance and goals. Miners can use any suggestions in this guide as it applies to their individual situations.
Although this guide is meant to be as comprehensive as possible, the security needs and potential attack vectors of the entire cryptocurrency industry can change. read further
