Re: OS hardening

This is used to make the system more secure, you should read the notes about bastille or just try it on a test system.

Hope this helps!

Re: OS hardening

10.20?

The best way to isolate a 10.20 system is to pull the LAN cable...

;-)

This is out of support for so many years now!

Hope this helps!

Yes, You can,

But support for HPUX 10.20 -> EOS - > End of support .
Problems are common to all, but attitude makes the difference

Re: OS hardening

For 10.20 you can google for "kevin steves hp-ux bastion host". He wrote a hardening paper for 11.0 which was most probably used as the basis for the initial bastille release, and you can try to transpose whatever will be relevant to 10.20. Do this on a test system first.

Re: OS hardening

Actually I've been able to find the paper he wrote for HP-UX 10 using the wayback machine.
