HP Bastille documentation

Hi,

Does HP provide any documentation on the bastille product ? I know of http://www.bastille-linux.org/ but wanted to see if anything HP specific has been published.

Regards,
Richard

Hi Richard,

Sorry for the second post, here is the white paper you are refering into,

http://www.windowsecurity.com/whitepaper/unix_security/Building_a_Bastion_Host_Using_HPUX_11.html

Re: HP Bastille documentation

Also, there is a user guide delivered with bastille at:
/opt/sec_mgmt/bastille/docs/user_guide.txt,

a man page,

and also a section in the Installation and Update Guide for 11.23 about using Bastille at installation time to create a secure "by default" installation at:
http://docs.hp.com/en/5991-2701/ch03s05.html

Hope that helps, also, note that the Bastion-host whitepaper is pretty old, the resulting configuration not-fully supportable, and Bastille took most of that input into account when putting capability into Bastille... who's resulting configuration *IS* supported.
