Linux Security Auditing Tool (LSAT)


The Linux Security Auditing Tool (LSAT) is a post install
security auditor for Linux/Unix. It checks many system configurations
and local network settings on the system for common security/config
errors and for packages that are not needed. 
It (for now) works under Linux (x86: Gentoo, RedHat, Debian, Mandrake;
Sparc: SunOS (2.x), Redhat sparc, Mandrake Sparc; Apple OS X)

Latest updates: Changelog: 05/04/2008    Package: 05/12/2008
Latest version: 0.9.7.1

NEWS:
05/12/2008:
Small problem with redhat output in 0.9.7 and forgot to clean
up all make/config files when I packaged it, so it is now at
0.9.7-1. I will also be fixing some RH enterprise and SElinux
issues as time permits. 

05/04/2008:
I no longer have access to a RedHat/Fedora machine, and my trusty
Sun Ultra2 is down for the count. If you have access to a RH/Fedora
machine, please report any problems. If you want to donate a
Sun machine to me, let me know :)

05/21/2007:
Note, I updated the 0.9.6 tarball and zipfile. The "development"
version of Makefile.in was included and it has been changed
to a more sensible one. Sorry for the verbose compile output. 

10/06/2005:
After a long break from LSAT, I should be looking at it again
from time to time and making improvements... first I will be 
making sure it all still works on all of my new systems, and then
parsing my way through the TODO list and adding to it.

10/04/2003:
Updated the demo page of the lsat -w output...
Here it is.

10/03/2003:
Note: The command line options/switches have changed.
Please do a -h or --usage on 0.8.5 or read the README file
for more info...

NOTE: This is merely an auditing tool, and does not impose
any form of security on the box itself. I take no responsibility
for its use/reliability/blah/blah. Again:
This software does not modify anything (yet) to make your box more secure, 
it is an auditor. It will report possible security flaws in the configuration
of the system.

Special note: Please email me with bugs and the like.
Also, please email me with suggestions, etc. It is your input
which will make this software better. Thanks.
