NAME

BastilleBackEnd - harden a host  

SYNOPSIS

BastilleBackEnd  

DESCRIPTION

This manual page briefly documents briefly BastilleBackEnd .

This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

BastilleBackEnd implements all the changes configured previously by using InteractiveBastille or AutomatedBastille based on the appropiate configuration file.  

OPTIONS

BastilleBackEnd uses the following options:
-v
Verbose mode. Actions are printed to the logs and to STDOUT.
-l
Log-only mode. No action is taken; merely logs what changes would have been made.
-r PREFIX
All the filenames are prefixed with PREFIX (/etc/whatever becomes /PREFIX/etc/whatever). This option could be used to commit changes to NFS filesystems, or file systems with a different mount point than the current root (/) filesystem.

 

FILES

/etc/Bastille/config
Configuration file which defines all the security measures selected by the administrator to be enabled.
/var/log/Bastille/action-log
/var/log/Bastille/error-log
Logs that hold information of actions taken on the system. /var/log/Bastille/undo/
Directory holding all information for the undo operation.

 

SEE ALSO

AutomatedBastille(8), RevertBastille(8). InteractiveBastille(8).
The programs have more documentation available at /usr/share/doc/bastille on Debian systems.
