I don't think you need to edit smb.conf.
In Nautilus, you can mark a local folder as shared.
In Nautilus, you can also in menu open Network and get a list of visible computer.
Could you describe more your issue.
For security, I think it's enough to parameter your router firewall to block CIFS protocol, which is probably already the default setting.
