TCB Trusted Computing Base install (good or bad)?
That was me. I had TCB installed on a SAP R/3 database server. Actually, the
I was the AIX consultant and a high priced SAP consultant came in to do the
SAP install. From the root directory, he ran chown -R sappr1:oracle . and
then AIX became really unhappy when it couldn't get permissions to run
commands in /bin /sbin and security related information under /etc.
The machine wouldn't boot either, except from CD, where I accessed the
maintenance shell and ran a tcb repair command where it restored the proper
permissions on all system files. Saved me from a lengthy restore and was
I recommend TCB for anyone running a system that has the potential for hack
either intentionally or unintentionally. You can audit your system after a
suspected compromise and verify via permissions and checksums that no one
has modified any of your system files.
