 asecure(1M)                                                     asecure(1M)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      asecure - control access to Audio on a workstation

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      /opt/audio/bin/asecure [-CdelP] [+h host] [-h host] [+p user] [-p user]
           [+u user] [-u user] [+b host,user] [-b host,user]

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      On Series 700 workstations, audio is secured so that only the user on
      the local workstation can access audio. You use the asecure command to
      modify audio security. This command does not apply to X stations; on
      an X station, access to audio is unrestricted.

      To modify audio security, become root on the local workstation where
      you want make a change.  Then, use asecure as follows:

           /opt/audio/bin/asecure -C

      When prompted, enter any meaningful password.  Issuing asecure -C
      creates the Audio Security File (ASF).  The ASF contains information
      that determines which hosts and users can access the Aserver, and
      which users (other than the superuser) can modify the ASF.

      If needed, you can allow unrestricted access to audio on this
      workstation.  To remove audio security, issue this command:

           /opt/audio/bin/asecure -d

      If instead, you wish to modify security, you use asecure to make
      changes to the information in the ASF. (Because the ASF is a binary
      file, we do not recommend using an editor on this file.) You can use
      asecure to make these types of changes:

           +  Allow all clients from a remote host to access the server.

           +  Allow specific users from all other hosts to access the

           +  Allow a specific user from a specific host to access the

           +  Disable access control, allowing complete unrestricted access
              to the server, but leaving the ASF intact.

      Every operation that creates, reinitializes, or changes the contents
      of the ASF is logged in the /var/adm/audio/asecure_log file, so that
      you can track any changes to the ASF.

    Options    [Toc]    [Back]
      asecure supports the following options:

 Hewlett-Packard Company            - 1 -   HP-UX 11i Version 2: August 2003

 asecure(1M)                                                     asecure(1M)

           +b|-b host,user
                          Add/delete hostname,username pair. You must be
                          either superuser or a privileged user to do this.
                          You can supply more than one hostname,username
                          pair separated by blanks.

                          To use either the +b or -b options, you MUST
                          supply at least one hostname,username pair. This
                          option will not work without a pair.

           -C             Create a new ASF file, called the audio.sec file.
                          Access control default is enabled with no entries
                          in the access list. Aserver can now be accessed
                          only by local users on the host machine. If an
                          audio.sec file already exists, it is reinitialized.

                          You must be superuser to execute this option. This
                          option is mutually-exclusive of all other options.

                          This option requires a password. This is an extra
                          layer of protection for the contents of the ASF.
                          It is designed to prevent surreptitious
                          manipulation of the ASF. If you are creating a new
                          ASF, you are prompted for a password and an
                          encrypted copy of that password is stored in the
                          new ASF.

                          If the ASF already exists, you are prompted for
                          the password. If your password matches the
                          password stored in the ASF, the ASF is then reinitialized.

           -d             Disable access control to the Aserver. This allows
                          unrestricted access by all clients.

           -e             Enable access control to the Aserver. This
                          restricts access to clients listed in the ASF.
                          Enabled is the default state.

           +h|-h host     Add/delete hostnames for ALL users. You must be
                          either superuser or a  privileged user to do this.
                          You can supply more than one hostname separated by

           -l             List the contents of the ASF. This option shows a
                          list of the hostnames and/or usernames that have
                          access to the Aserver.

           -P             Change password for audio.sec file. You must be
                          superuser to do this. You are prompted once for

 Hewlett-Packard Company            - 2 -   HP-UX 11i Version 2: August 2003

 asecure(1M)                                                     asecure(1M)

                          the old password, then prompted twice for the new

           +p|-p user     Add/delete privileged users.  You must be
                          superuser to do this and must enter the password
                          given when the ASF was created (see -C option). To
                          see a list of privileged users, you must be
                          superuser and use the -l option.

           +u|-u user     Add/delete usernames for ALL hosts. You must be
                          either superuser or a privileged user to do this.
                          You can supply more than one username separated by

 EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]
      List entries in access list.

           /opt/audio/bin/asecure -l

           /opt/audio/bin/asecure -d

      Add moonbeam host for all users to access list. Remove pluto host for
      all users from access list.

           /opt/audio/bin/asecure +h moonbeam -h pluto

      Add user comet for hosts saturn and mercury to access list.

           /opt/audio/bin/asecure +b saturn,comet mercury,comet

      Add user comet to access list for all hosts. Remove users venus and
      neptune from access list for all hosts.

           /opt/audio/bin/asecure +u comet -u venus neptune

      Create new access list.

           /opt/audio/bin/asecure -C
