I use to take backup of File systems
fro Exp # tar -cvf /dev/rmt0 /filesystem
I want to make this backup Password protected so no one can restore
or no one can run tar -tvf , tar -xvf without password
We have a client that is pretty hot and bothered about "password
protecting" the data that is written to tape. Currently using Suns
Networker, and according to Sun, this software does not provide such an
option. Well, they do if you are using a Windows of Netware client, in
the form of ASMs. But for some reason, not with Unix (go figure, the
software is actually running on Solaris 9)
I have done a little research on other products and I don't even see
this as being a typical feature; is it? What they are looking for is
some sort of prompt to be presented (before or after a backup) that
will give them a warm and fuzzy feeling that their data is "secure"
when it is shipped off site.
