Overview

HP-UX Standard Mode Security Extensions enhances the system security of HP-UX 11i version 2. HP-UX Standard Mode Security Extensions also make several trusted mode security features available on standard mode HP-UX systems.

What Is in HP-UX Standard Mode Security Extensions

HP-UX Standard Mode Security Extensions includes the following functionality:

  • User Security Database
    The user security database enables you to set security attributes on a per-user basis. Per-user security attributes override system-wide defaults. Previously, all HP-UX security attributes and password policy restrictions were set on a system-wide basis.
  • Audit
    The HP-UX auditing system records security-related events for analysis. Administrators use auditing to detect and analyze security breaches on standard mode HP-UX systems.
