The only way to make it secure is disabling it. Use ssh instead.

To disable .rhosts access go to "smitty inetdconf", choose "Remove an inetd Subserver",
select "shell" and hit Enter.
Repeat this for "exec".

chsubserver -r inetd -C /etc/inetd.conf -d -v login -p tcp
refresh -s inetd

Open in new window

OK, I forgot:

Repeat the "smitty inetdconf" steps I gave you above for "login" as well.
