Immediately after installation, apply the required and recommended patches using HP-UX Software Assistant (SWA).

SWA is a command-line-based tool that consolidates and simplifies patch management and security bulletin management on HP-UX systems. The SWA tool replaces Security Patch Check (SPC), and is the HP-recommended utility to use to maintain currency with HP-published security bulletins for HP-UX software.

NOTE: Use of the Software Assistant software tool can help improve system security, but it does not guarantee system security.

For more information on SWA, refer to the following:
