The install-time security options allow you to configure an HP-UX Bastille security lockdown engine, which can include an HP-UX IPFilter firewall. After system installation is complete, it will have one of the preconfigured levels of security.

During installation, you can choose from four preconfigured levels of security:


Install the security infrastructure but without enabling optional security features. This is the default.


Install a host-based lockdown system, without HP-UX IPFilter firewall configuration. With this level of security, most network services are disabled. These services can be reinstated by running the bastille(1M) command.


Install a managed lockdown system that blocks most incoming traffic with an HP-UX IPFilter firewall.


Install a DMZ Full lockdown system, which is a host-based and IPFilter network lockdown. HP-UX IPFilter blocks almost all incoming connections.
