Lightbulb Equivalent to eeprom security-mode in RHEL?


Hi there:

I am trying to check the security in a RHEL machine, and a solaris script was given to me so I could figure out what to check.

In one of the checks, the command

eeprom security-mode

is executed

I am unable to find any equivalent to linux. Any help on what approach to take will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Edit: Perhaps I have found the solution.
Code:
# dmidecode -t 24
Will print the security stats of hardware security.

Hmm, but that isn't exactly the same, right?..

Not exactly, I just want to find out if the machine has some password before booting, perhaps that can do the job

from the Open Solaris 10 eeprom manpage

Code:
 security-mode

         Firmware security  level  (options:  none,  command,  or
         full). If set to command or full, system will prompt for
         PROM security password. Defaults to  none.This  property
         has no special meaning or behavior on x86 based systems.
From fedora 11 dmidecode manpage

Code:
 24   Hardware Security
Of course, anny comment of this approach will be greatly appreciated. I will keep on my research, and will post any thing i find out.
