Security and Network Setup
Solaris file permissions secured
Network and name service changes
The fix-modes utility (from the Solaris Security Toolkit) adjusts
group and world write permissions. It is run with the '-s' option to
secure file permissions for Solaris files that were created at
install time only. Customer-generated files will not be affected.
NOTE: When this command is run, a file called /var/sadm/
install/content.mods is left. Do not delete this file. It contains
valuable information needed by fix modes to revert the changes
to the system file permissions if the security setting is changed
back to medium.

these services are prohibited with a 'high' security setting, but if
they are re-enabled manually the hostname information will
Sendmail daemon secured
Sendmail is forced to perform only outgoing mail. No incoming
mail will be accepted.
