NAME

       BastilleBackEnd - harden a host

SYNOPSIS

       BastilleBackEnd

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page briefly documents briefly BastilleBackEnd .

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

       BastilleBackEnd implements all the  changes  configured  previously  by
       using  InteractiveBastille or AutomatedBastille based on the appropiate
       configuration file.

OPTIONS

       BastilleBackEnd uses the following options:

       -v     Verbose mode. Actions are printed to the logs and to STDOUT.

       -l     Log-only mode. No action is  taken;  merely  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.
              /var/log/Bastille/undo/
                     Directory holding all information for the undo operation.
