       BastilleBackEnd - harden a host




       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.


       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.


              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.


       AutomatedBastille(8), RevertBastille(8).  InteractiveBastille(8).
       The     programs     have     more     documentation    available    at
       /usr/share/doc/bastille on Debian systems.
