how to view password setting for a trusted system?

I recently made changes to the system-wide settings for some of my trusted servers using the modprdef command. I changed:
- null passwords not allowed
- minimum time interval between password changes
- password life time interval
- password expiration time interval
- password expiration warning time interval
- maximum number of unsuccessful logins
- maximum time between last loging and current login

I made these changes in response to an audit of our servers. The auditors are now asking for proof that these changes have been made.

Is there a command that will list the system wide settings for a trusted server?

Thanks.

Hi Pam,

You can check the default file in:

/tcb/files/auth/system

Re: how to view password setting for a trusted system?

Hi Pam,

You can check each one as follows:

- null passwords not allowed:
/usr/lbin/getprdef -m nullpw

- minimum time interval between password changes:
/usr/lbin/getprdef -m mintm

- password lifetime interval:
/usr/lbin/getprdef -m lftm

- password expiration time interval:
/usr/lbin/getprdef -m exptm

- password expiration warning time interval:
/usr/lbin/getprdef -m expwarn

- maximum number of unsuccessful logins:
/usr/lbin/getprdef -m umaxlntr

- maximum time between last loging and current login:
Not sure about this one!

regards,

Richard

Hi Pamela,

yes,

Run "/usr/lbin/getprpw username" and you will see all the changes you have set as a default on this server.

What vivek is mentioned (/usr/lbin/getprpw ) is the best way to find the system wide settings for user in a trusted systems.

#man getprpw

above command will give you more details and the meaning of the output /usr/lbin/getprpw .

Hi,
getprpw is the command or else you can ask the auditor to login into the system and do all this means set
- null passwords
- minimum time interval between password changes
- password life time interval
- password expiration time interval
- password expiration warning time interval
- maximum number of unsuccessful logins
- maximum time between last loging and current login

if he will fail then you did the changes.
