I'm looking for a way to install a debian potato as securely as
possible. I would follow this procedure in the future to install a lot
of servers. The problem I have is that a lot of unwanted packages get
installed by default (telnetd, exim, at, bc, fingerd, gpm, lpr, mtools,
mutt, nfs-server, talkd, ....), and having to deinstall them manually
each time is not very secure as one could forget a package anytime. It
is also time consuming.
Is there a way to prevent the installation of those packages? Why are
these installed? Where is it configured?
Thanks for your help.
