       BastilleChooser - harden a host using predefined profiles




       This manual page briefly documents BastilleChooser .

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

       BastilleChooser offers a GTK+ GUI to let administrators choose  between
       different  security  profiles  and implement them without going through
       the questions of InteractiveBastille.

       BastilleChooser asks for the type of host (workstation  or  server),  a
       security  level  (lax,  moderate  or  paranoid),  and services to leave
       enabled on the host.  Using the selected profile, a  new  configuration
       is built and installed on the system.

       Note,  however,  that  even  if  servers  and  workstations  have  very
       different security levels, general security levels are not as  good  as
       security levels adapted to your own security policy.


              Configuration  files which define available profiles.  These are
              customized   using   the   answers   to   questions   posed   by
              Configuration  file  which  defines  all  the  security measures
              selected by the administrator to be enabled.
              Logs that hold information of actions taken on the system.
              Directory holding all information for the undo operation.
