hi

may I know where can I find a reference regarding security for Sun Solaris 7. More sepecifically, I'd like to know the function of every services in /etc/inetd.conf, /etc/rc2.d and /etc/rc3.d

It is because I may want to disable all unnecessary services in order to improve the security of my server.

thanks
brandon

if there is no additional software installed which requires inetd, you usually can comment out all services in /etc/inetd.conf.
Keep in mind that not all services are run by inetd, some are installed to run as daemon from the rc-scripts at boot time.
Sun's AnswerBook may be a good reference for information.

One of the best articles which summerizes the security actions you need to take, and has a devoted section to inetd services is located on SUN's website.

I'm sure you will find there what you are looking for and much more.

Enjoy
