Shadow passwords on Tru64


I just applied the ShadowPassword bundle to my HP-UX system. Now I want the same ability for my Tru64 systems. How do I enable shadow passwords? I do not want to set up a trusted (C2) system.

With Tru64, you get the standard passwd file mechanism, or you get the C2 system.

Yes. I think you need to enable Enhanced Security to get the shadowing working.

Run "sysman secconfig"

Select ENHANCED security over BASE

Select the SHADOW profile (over UPGRADE or CUSTOM)

"The SHADOW profile enables shadow passwords so that the encrypted
passwords are not visible in /etc/passwd and sets related defaults."

Use defaults for the rest.

When you're finished, reboot.
