Protect a PIX config from password removal utilities - can the PIX erase it's own config as a security measure if passwords are removed?
Posted on 2008-06-25
Is is possible to have the PIX erase the startup-config if the password is removed in ROMMON using the (well known) BIN file utility?
Asked another way: What measures can be taken to prevent a PIX from having its configuration leaked, especially using password removal utilities?
* My password is already hardned
* I know that the best security measure is to keep the device in a locked secured area, it IS in a secured area, but that area is offsite and the security of that room cannot be guaranteed, what if the PIX is stolen?
