28.8 Secure the console port

28.8.2 SunOS 5.X

SunOS 5.X requires the root password whenever you enter single user mode, both when booting, and when using init to move to single user run levels.

SunOS 5.X has the /etc/default directory which contains files that set the default policies for the system. They specify whether to allow remote root logins, what the minimum password length should be, whether to create an su log file, etc. - /etc/default/login - /etc/default/passwd - /etc/default/su
