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.
