Oracle Hardware Management Pack Security Summary

Important security items to remember when configuring all system management tools are:

  • System management products can be used to obtain a bootable root environment.

    With a bootable root environment, you can obtain Oracle ILOM access, Oracle System Assistant access, and hard disk access.

  • System management products include powerful tools that require administrator or root privileges to run.

    With this level of access, it is possible to change hardware configuration and erase data.
