Securing FTP in AIX 5.1
Posted on 2005-04-15
I have one for all of you AIX guru's out there -
We have recently taken on a vendor who needs FTP-Put access to a directory on our UNIX server in order to send invoice confirmation files to us. Setting up the basic FTP service on our server was no problem but now I have an issue with security. The directory they need to access is /pro/pronto/edi/in/berger - this is the ONLY directory they need to place files in. I have their user home directory set to /pro/pronto/edi/in so when the session is initated - that's their default directory. The problem is they can cd to any other directory on the system from their with a standard FTP client and that's not a good thing. I can't mess up the security permissions for this directory structure or it will break other functions as well. ANY ideas would be VERY appreciated.
