The Automated Security Enhancement Tool (ASET), available as a separate option with SunOS release 4 systems, is included with the Solaris 7 operating environment. ASET enables you to specify an overall system security level (low, medium, or high) and automatically maintain systems at those levels. This tool can be set up to run on a server and all its clients or on individual clients.
ASET performs these tasks:
Verifies system file permissions
Verifies system file contents
Checks integrity of group file entries
Checks system configuration files
Checks environment files (.profile,.login, and .cshrc)
Verifies EEPROM settings to restrict console login access
Allows establishment of a firewall or gateway system
System Administration Guide, Volume II describes ASET setup and monitoring in detail.
