NAME

BastilleChooser - harden a host using predefined profiles  

SYNOPSIS

BastilleChooser  

DESCRIPTION

This manual page briefly documents BastilleChooser .

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

BastilleChooser offers a GTK+ GUI to let administrators choose between different security profiles and implement them without going through the questions of InteractiveBastille.

BastilleChooser asks for the type of host (workstation or server), a security level (lax, moderate or paranoid), and services to leave enabled on the host. Using the selected profile, a new configuration is built and installed on the system.

Note, however, that even if servers and workstations have very different security levels, general security levels are not as good as security levels adapted to your own security policy.
