System Administration Guide: Security Services

System Files Permissions Tuning

This task sets the permissions on system files to the security level that you designate. This task is run when the system is installed. If you decide later to alter the previously established levels, then run this task again. At low security, permissions are set to values that are appropriate for an open information-sharing environment. At medium security, permissions are tightened to produce adequate security for most environments. At high security, permissions are tightened to severely restrict access.

Any modifications that this task makes to system files permissions or parameter settings are reported in the tune.rpt file. For an example of the files that ASET consults when ASET sets permissions, see Tune File Examples.
