NAME

InteractiveBastille - bastion a host using Bastille  

SYNOPSIS

InteractiveBastille  

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents InteractiveBastille briefly.

This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution

InteractiveBastille asks questions to the user in order to define what security measures must be implemented on the current system. The intention is to both educate administrators on security and harden the host's security. The configuration file generated by InteractiveBastille is then used by BastilleBackEnd to make the changes to the local system if the administrator agrees to run the changes. In any case, the same configuration can be used to harden other (similar) hosts non-interactively using AutomatedBastille.  

OPTIONS

InteractiveBastille uses the following options:
-x
Use the Perl/Tk (X11) GUI (In Debian GNU/Linux this requires that the perl-tk package is installed)
-c
Use the Curses (non-X11) GUI (In Debian GNU/Linux this requires that the libcurses-perl package is installed)
-T,
Test mode only, the questions in the database are tested but nothing is done.
--norequires
Ask all questions, even ones that do not apply.
-v
Verbose mode, actions are printed to the logs and to STDOUT.
-l
Log-only mode: no action is taken; only 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.
