business priorities. WLM is most effective managing applications that are
CPU-bound. It automatically adapts system or partition CPU resources
(cores) to the demands, SLOs, and priorities of the running applications. (A
core is the actual data processing engine within a processor, where a single
processor can have multiple cores, and a core can support multiple
execution threads through Hyper-Threading, introduced with HP-UX 11i v3,
as discussed below.) It adjusts the CPU allocation of a group of processes
known as a workload, basing adjustment on the current needs and
performance of the applications in that workload.
HP servers. Using these policies can increase system utilization and facilitate
controlled sharing of system resources. In addition, gWLM provides both
real-time and historical monitoring of the resource allocation.
gWLM consists of a VSE Central Management Server, or CMS. You configure
gWLM and monitor your workloads from the system where the CMS software
is installed. Also, you use agent software on the systems where you have
workloads you want gWLM to manage.

management to stack multiple applications within the same operating system.
HP Process Resource Manager and HP-UX Workload Manager can dedicate
specific resources to specific applications within an operating system image,
avoiding resource contention issues. Using HP-UX 11i V2 Security
Containment, organizations can ensure that application instances cannot
access processes or files from other applications or the system. This ensures
that multiple application instances run securely in a consolidated
environment, providing the benefits of consolidation while preserving the
security of a scale out environment. For software licensing purposes, the
maximum number of CPUs in a Secure Resource Partition can be capped.

Platform security fundamentals
Designed for the optimal protection against both external and internal threats, HP-UX 11i offers industryleading breadth and depth of UNIX security features. Focused on feature integration aimed at proactively
mitigating risk, reducing compliance cost and accelerating time to implementation, HP-UX security
solutions significantly lower IT costs. This set of fully integrated and complementary features is designed
to provide layered security with in-depth protection of all your enterprise assets by protecting data,
systems and identities. For more details, visit www.hp.com/go/hpux11isecurity
Downloads and
Function
documentation
Encrypted volume and file EVFS is an operating system service that fills the compliance need to store
system (EVFS)
files in a way that they cannot be read by unauthorized parties who obtain
physical access to storage. Files and databases from current applications can
be encrypted without changes to the application or underlying storage
infrastructure. Read more
Trusted Computing
HP-UX TCS provides software support for hardware-enforced key
Services (TCS)
management on supported HP Integrity servers. By providing a low-cost
embedded security chip option (known as a Trusted Platform Module) in its
zx2-based Integrity servers, HP has established a foundation for strong
protection of sensitive information - including cryptographic keys, such as for
EVFS.
Security containment
HP-UX 11i security containment introduces three core technologies:
compartments, fine-grained privileges, and role-based access control.
Together, these three components provide a highly secure operating
environment without requiring applications to be modified. Read more
Protected Systems:
PS-Webserver is a pre-configured secure Web services platform built on HPWebserver (PS-Webserver) UX. The secure architecture and run time environment isolates the Internet
from backend servers and isolates the Web server from the intranet. Read

Open SSL
Open SSL offers a general-purpose cryptography library and implementation
of the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1)
protocols.
Secure Shell
Secure Shell is a powerful software-based approach to encrypted network
security. It provides secured remote login. Credentials and data sent over the
network are encrypted by SSH-1 or SSH-2 protocols and decrypted once they
reach their destination

HP Integrity BL870c Server Blade
Standard Features
IPSec
IPSec adds integrity protection and confidentiality to network communication
over the Internet and within the enterprise to applications which lack these
capabilities without modifying existing applications.
MD5 Secure Checksum
MD5sum provides a cryptographic file integrity utility and API based on the
(MD5sum)
standard Message Digest 5 (MD5) algorithm.
HP-UX 11i Internet Express In addition to the fully-supported features listed above, HP packages a
number of limited-support open source products that offer additional data
security, including: OpenSC/OpenCT, ClamAV, CyrusSASL, GnuPG,
SSLDump, Stunnel, and Tripwire.
Bastille
Bastille is a very easy-to-use security hardening wizard (also known as a
lockdown wizard) that enhances the security of an HP-UX 11i host by turning
off unneeded services, tightening security configuration settings, configuring
IPFilter, etc. It accommodates the various degrees of hardening required for
web, application and database servers, and can walk a non-security expert
through the hardening decisions.
Host IDS
HIDS enhances host-level security with near real-time automatic monitoring
of each configured host for signs of potentially damaging intrusions. HIDS is
a standard feature of HP-UX 11i, making HP the only systems vendor to offer
its own host intrusion detection product. Read more
Secure resource partitions Secure Resource Partitions combine kernel level security (via Security
Containment) and proven resource management to stack multiple
applications within the same operating system.
IPFilter
IPFilter is a stateful firewall (filters IP packets to control packet flow in or out
of the system; stateful simplifies and increases security of rule definitions by
allowing return traffic based on outbound rules without having to define
broader inbound rules). HP's unique dynamic connection allocation provides
protection from denial-of-service attacks. IPFilter provides increased security
defense by minimizing the number of server exposure points.
Software Assistant (SWA) HP-UX SWA is a command-line tool that consolidates, simplifies and helps
automate patch and security bulletin management on HP-UX systems. The
SWA tool is the HP-recommended utility to maintain currency with HPpublished security bulletins for HP-UX software.
Install-time Security
Install-time Security (ITS) is available to customers running HP-UX 11i v2 or
later releases of the operating system, as an install option to lockdown
systems during installation. ITS makes HP-UX 11i more secure out-of-the-box
when customers select higher security levels. There are four choices, ranging
from a highly locked down (DMZ) level with a tightly configured IPFilter
firewall blocking most inbound traffic (and many services also disabled or
secured) to a maximum compatibility level which installs security tools, but
doesn't apply a security level.
Boot Authentication
A site's security policies may require users to authenticate before they can
boot the system into single-user mode. Previously, this feature was only
available on a system that had been converted to Trusted Mode. This
product now provides secure single-user mode with root password
protection, but without the overhead of converting the system to trusted
mode.

Extensions
Shadow Passwords
Strong Random Number
Generator
Enhances the system security of HP-UX 11i v2 and v3. Several security
features previously available only in trusted mode are now available on
standard mode HP-UX 11i systems. Features include enhanced password
and user account security, such as password expiration on inactivity history
reuse restrictions, auditing, and much more.
Shadow Passwords enhance system security by hiding user encrypted
passwords in a shadow password file. Encrypted passwords previously stored
in the publicly readable /etc/passwd file can be optionally moved to the
/etc/shadow file, which is accessible only by a privileged user.
The Strong Random Number Generator provides a cryptographically strong,
non-reproducible source of true random numbers for applications with
strong security requirements, such as for generating encryption keys
HP-UX 11i Internet Express In addition to the fully-supported features listed above, HP packages a
number of limited-support open source products that offer additional system
security, including: Chkrootkit, PAM_passwdqc, DanteSOCKS, Snort,
Nessus, Xinetd.
Identity Management
Providing the most complete and integrated solution for security
Integration (IdMI)
management, IdMI allows administrators to enforce critical system access
and authorizations. In addition to integrated enforcement, with the bundled
version of Select Access for IdMI, customers benefit from single-vendor
support for this mission critical capability.
Select Access for IdMI
Select Access for IdMI is a follow-up product to the HP-UX Identity
Management Integration feature. This version of Select Access supports
complete administration of HP-UX security policy for both user authentication
and access control privileged functions within the OS. HP-UX security policy
can be centrally controlled and managed through Select Access.
Role-based Access Control HP-UX RBAC (a component of security containment) is an alternative to the
(RBAC)
traditional "all-or-nothing" root user model, which grants permissions to the
root user for all operations, and denies permissions to non-root users for
certain operations. HP-UX RBAC allows you to distribute administrative
responsibilities by creating roles with appropriate authorizations and
assigning them to non-root users and groups.
AAA Server
HP-UX 11i AAA Server provides authentication, authorization and accounting
services using the RADIUS and EAP protocols to authenticate and authorize
user access to network devices and software applications. The AAA Server
also generates usage logs for accounting, auditing and billing purposes.
Red Hat Directory Server Red Hat Directory Server is a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
compliant software server that centralizes user profiles, application settings,
group data, policies and access control information into a network-based
registry. The server is available on HP-UX 11i and operates on both HP
9000 and HP Integrity 64-bit hardware server platforms.
LDAP-UX Client
With growth, consolidation and a dynamic environment, enterprises need
new technologies to manage and verify security in their IT environments. In a
highly distributed environment, local processes, security practices and
administration methods are often inconsistent, repetitive and difficult to audit.
With LDAP-UX Enterprise IT architects can use LDAP directories as one tool to
help unify and simplify many of the above-mentioned practices
