NAME

       mandos-monitor - Text-based GUI to control the Mandos server.

SYNOPSIS

       mandos-monitor

DESCRIPTION

       mandos-monitor is an interactive program to monitor and control the operations of the
       Mandos server (see mandos(8)).

PURPOSE

       The purpose of this is to enable remote and unattended rebooting of client host computer
       with an encrypted root file system. See the section called “OVERVIEW” for details.

OVERVIEW

       This is part of the Mandos system for allowing computers to have encrypted root file
       systems and at the same time be capable of remote and/or unattended reboots. The computers
       run a small client program in the initial RAM disk environment which will communicate with
       a server over a network. All network communication is encrypted using TLS. The clients are
       identified by the server using an OpenPGP key; each client has one unique to it. The
       server sends the clients an encrypted password. The encrypted password is decrypted by the
       clients using the same OpenPGP key, and the password is then used to unlock the root file
       system, whereupon the computers can continue booting normally.

       This program is used to monitor and control the Mandos server. In particular, it can be
       used to approve Mandos clients which have been configured to require approval. It also
       shows all significant events reported by the Mandos server.

BUGS

       This program can currently only be used to monitor and control a Mandos server with the
       default D-Bus service name of “Mandos”.

EXAMPLE

       This program takes no options:

       mandos-monitor

SECURITY

       This program must be permitted to access the Mandos server via the D-Bus interface. This
       normally requires the root user, but could be configured otherwise by reconfiguring the
       D-Bus server.
