change system security defaults
relax changes selected system-wide security defaults to
one of several predefined levels (high,
improved, low, and traditional).
The directories in /tcb/lib/relax
are named for each level, and each directory contains three files:
specifies fields to be updated in the file
specifies files and values to be updated or removed in the directory
is a shell script which is run to make other changes to such settings
as kernel parameters using
default umask settings by edits to various files, and other changes.
relax takes one argument, which should be the name of a
directory in /tcb/lib/relax, for example:
This reconfigures the system security settings to the ``improved''
level of security.
If the script for the level you select makes changes to the kernel
configuration, these changes will not come into effect until
UNIX® is rebooted.
