siacfg - Update a matrix.conf file for adding or removing
/usr/sbin/siacfg [-[arul]] [g group_codes] [-[PA]] [-R
other_mech] [-D] [-F matrix_file] name path
Add a new mechanism. Mutually exclusive with -r, -u, and
-l. Remove a mechanism. Mutually exclusive with -a, -u,
and -l. The path parameter is optional when this option
is specified. Update a mechanism. Mutually exclusive with
-a, -r, and -l. Used when a new version of a mechanism is
installed which supports more of the entrypoints. Change
the definition of the local mechanism. Mutually exclusive
with -a, -r, and -u. This should only be used with the SIA
mechanisms supplied by HP. Specify which functional
groups are supported by the given mechanism. The functional
groups are specified by the following characters
for use with the -g option: The session routines
(siad_ses_*(), siad_chk_invoker()). The *pwent routines
(siad_setpwent(), siad_endpwent(), siad_getpwent(),
siad_getpwuid(), siad_getpwnam()). The *grent routines
(siad_setgrent(), siad_endgrent(), siad_getgrent(),
siad_getgrgid(), siad_getgrnam()). The change routines
(siad_chk_user(), siad_chg_*()). The *init routine
(siad_init()). The i code is not truly optional, and will
be assumed even if it is not specified. It is provided as
an option for the -goption so that a mechanism which supports
nothing else can be specified. It is an error to
support the change routines without supporting the session
If this option is not specified, an attempt will be
made to determine which routines are supported by
the associated shared library by using dlopen() and
dlsym() to find the corresponding entrypoints.
Prepend. Only meaningful with -a, and mutually
exclusive with -A. Specifies that this mechanism
should be added as the very first one to be tried.
This is the default behavior. Append. Only meaningful
with -a, and mutually exclusive with -P.
Specifies that this mechanism should be added as
the very last non-local mechanism. Relative positioning.
Only meaningful with -A or -P, this option
modifies the meaning of those options to specify an
insertion point relative to the specified other
mechanism. For -A this will be immediately after
it, and for -P it will be immediately before it.
The name to be associated with the given mechanism, such
as DCE, BSD, OSFC2, ASDU, or AFS. The path to the shared
library which contains the entry points for this mechanism.
Required for all but the -r option.
The siacfg utility provides a way to update the
/etc/sia/matrix.conf files without the errors which are
likely during hand-editing. The use of this utility also
prevents the proliferation of pre-built configuration
files which result from trying to supply pre-built configurations
in support of systems with BASE or ENHANCED security,
with or without DCE, and with or without ASDU.
An example of how to use this utility to convert from BASE
to ENHANCED security:
# siacfg -l -g isc OSFC2 /usr/shlib/libsecurity.so
To add DCE SIA support to a system:
# siacfg -a DCE /usr/shlib/libdcesiad.so
To remove DCE from the matrix.conf file:
# siacfg -r DCE
To create a default BSD matrix.conf file:
# siacfg -l BSD libc.so
To create a default enhanced security matrix.conf file:
# siacfg -l OSFC2 /usr/shlib/libsecurity.so
Executable. SIA mechanism configuration file.
