Implementing and Maintaining AIX Security Policies

by Andre Derek Protas Oct. 1, 2017 via Infosecwriters

This paper is meant to serve as an introductory guide to the basic security and server hardening functions present in AIX. Many of the features and functions shown throughout this guide are applicable to AIX 4.3 and above, but are more directed toward AIX 5.2. Since security is and will always remain a major issue in server environments, it is crucial that system administrators have a strong working knowledge of security policy implementation and hardening features. This knowledge can be applied to new systems, or to bring older systems up to date.
