Lynis - security auditing tool

   
SecurityLynis is an open source security auditing tool.

Used to evaluate the security defenses of Linux/Unix-based systems. It runs on the host itself, so it performs more extensive security scans than vulnerability scanners.
Lynis runs on almost all Unix-based systems and versions, including:
  • AIX
  • FreeBSD
  • HP-UX
  • Linux
  • Mac OS
  • NetBSD
  • OpenBSD
  • Solaris
Lynis is flexible and easy to use. Installation is optional. Just copy it to a system, and use "./lynis audit system" to start the security scan. It is written in shell script and released as open source software (GPL).
