Hi there ,

I will be installing oracle 9i on a sparc Solaris 10 box and have been trying to find an OS hardening documnent or installation recommendations .....I would prefer not to do a "install everything" installation of Solaris.

Any pointers regarding 9i and Solaris10 would be fantastic .... even some "post install" (or pre oracle install) docs would also be brilliant

any help on this would be greatly appreciated

Do not allow ssh to root from a client machine, only from the console. Create only the O/S user that owns the Oracle product stack. Don't create additional O/S users.

Make the database passwords difficult ( check $ORACLE_HOME/dbms/admin/ for the password complexity script).
Expire and lock all database users that are not in use (not sys, system, sysman). Change the password to sys and system.

Use sunscreen, it is free on Solaris. Don't allow your server to respond to pings. Block ports that are not in use. Do not allow ftp usage. Use something other than port 1521 for the listener.

Oracle addresses many security issues at metalink.
