Barangay Transactions Management System

In the Philippines, one of the smallest unit of a government community is called a Purok (sometimes called a Sitio). A group of Purok is what we call a Barangay.

The Barangay government unit manages daily concerns within their own jurisdictions. They mostly take care their constituent’s daily concern’s such as individual clearances, tax certificates, sanitation, health, disputes and a lot more.

For such a small government unit (sometimes from 5 to 15 employees only) to handle and collect all this data is quite daunting.

For this purpose we have created the Barangay Transactions Management System (BTMS). It is a process automation facility where data collection and workflow is a breeze for a Barangay’s daily operation.



The Dashboard is a customizable interface where end users can see a quick overview of the Barangay performance.


The residents module is a comprehensive data entry system that allows complete infromation gathering in one action.


The household module lists a quick view of each household member, it displays details such as count, voter status, etc..


The household details section collects even the most minute detail. This is especially useful when generating data sets that requires filter parameters. This is especially useful during pandemic and natural disasters where the government needs to identify househo;ds that require assistance.


Process transactions in minutes. These include certificates, tax clearances, business permits, and a whole lot more.


One of the most daunting task is maintaining an orderly list of all complaints and settlements. Scheduling is a built in feature so you never miss a settlement hearing.


It also has a built in mini accounting syste to keep your barangay accountant happy. This saves a great deal of time for generating reports to be submitted to other government entities.

There are tons of features of the application, you might want to check this out by sending us a quick email.

For the most part, the Barangay Transactions Management System (BTMS) is indeed your answer for better workflow and data management.

How to connect to your CentOS with SSH

You recently got that shiny CentOS server up and running. You logged in a couple more times only to find out that it’s got lot’s of failed login attempts.. WTF?!! You’re being brute forced.

One solution is to enable SSH, and only use SSH. Here’s how you do it.


Download PuTTY (includes PuTTYgen which we will use later):

Binary Platform Signature Date
putty-0.70-installer.msi Windows (any) GPG signature 017-07-08
putty-64bit-0.70-installer Windows (64-bit) GPG signature 2017-07-08
  • Install PuTTY
  • Run PuttYgen
  • Change the number of bits as needed (usually 2048 is enough but I prefer 4096)
  • Click on the generate button
  • Put in a key passphrase
  • Save the generated public and private keys

  • Run PuTTY
  • Fill in your host name and click on connect

  • Login like usual as root

First we will need to create the directories for the authorized keys file. Issue the following commands:

  • mkdir ~/.ssh
  • chmod 0700 ~/.ssh
  • touch ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
  • chmod 0644 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

Install nano (or your favorite editor):

  • yum install nano

Edit the authorized_keys file:

  • nano ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

Copy the generated public key from PuTTYgen

Paste the text into the nano editor:

  • Hit ^X to exit saving changes

From here we can connect now using the SSH keys.

  • Start a new PuTTY Session
  • On the left pane of the PuTTY windows navigate to Connection -> Data
  • Fill in the Auto-login username as ‘root’

  • Then navigate to Connection -> Data -> SSH -> Auth
  • Browse for the the saved private key you did in the first step

  • From here you can save the connection (so you don’t need to do them all over again) and click on connect
  • Now this time it should not ask for your login credentials, instead it will ask for your passphrase from the earlier steps


Disable Username-Password Logins

Now that you’re all set, its always a good idea to disable username logins.

  • nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Find the elements from the filer and change it to as shown below:

PasswordAuthentication no
UsePAM no
  • ^X to exit and save
  • Then reboot – shutdown -r now

That’s it. Happy SSH!
