PATROL security levels

You can secure the data passed between PATROL components and restrict unauthorized users from accessing your data by implementing PATROL security. PATROL security is installed as part of the agent, console server, and consoles. KMs inherit the security policy from the agent, console server, and console on which they are installed.

Reviewing PATROL security

PATROL security is installed as part of the PATROL Agent, console server, and consoles. The PATROL Agent, console server, and consoles must operate at the same security level to communicate with each other. BMC PATROL for Internet Servers inherits the security policy from the agent, console server, and console on which it is installed. BMC PATROL for Internet Servers can operate at any PATROL security level.

To check the security level of a previously installed agent, console server, or console

  1. From the command line, switch to the path on the computer that you want to check:
    • %BMC_ROOT\..\common\security\bin\OS (Windows)
    • $BMC_ROOT/../common/security/bin/OS (UNIX)
  2. To display the security policy of the current computer, run the following command:
    esstool policy -a

The security level is displayed in the security level field of the output.
