Babel Enterprise – Cross Platform System Auditing Tool

Use Netsparker


Babel Enterprise is a systems auditing tool. Babel performs a security level check of the machine, or hardening. The check consists of a number of auditing tests that obtain a snap of the security status of each machine. The result is a security index of the system that is given after each execution. It a non-intrusive tool, meaning that it does not make any changes in the system at all. It simply takes note of what is not working properly and reports it to the user. .

Babel Enterprise has being designed to manage security on many different systems, different technologies and versions, and different issues and requirements. It is a distributed management system, multi-user, that allows redundant installation in all its critical components. Each change occurring in the system can be watched and marked automatically each time a new audit policy is executed. Users can add, delete or modify existing elements to see exactly if the system works better or worse and why. Babel Enterprise uses a pragmatic approach, evaluating those aspects of the system the represent a security risk and that can be improved with the intervention of an administrator.

Babel Enterprise has a version of its agent for each of the latest Microsoft operating systems, Windows 2003 and Windows XP, and the main Unix system: Solaris 10, AIX 5.x, SUSE GNU/Linux 9 ES and Ubuntu Dapper, although they can be easily adapted to different versions and other UNIX OSs (such as BDS or HP-UX )

Babel currently has modules for auditing many different aspects of system security. These are some examples of currently implemented audit modules:

  • Service minimization.
  • Centralized file hashing.
  • Anomalous SUID0 executable detection.
  • File permissions checker.
  • Password strength tests.
  • Generic registry lookup (Windows)
  • Remote services configuration.
  • Audit for Kernel networking and security parameters.
  • Apache2 configuration auditing
  • User accounts auditing
  • Root environment audit
  • UID0 users detection.
  • Centralized patch management.
  • Centralized software inventory.
  • Listening ports auditing.
  • Inetd / Xinetd minimization.

You can download the latest stable version of Babel Enterprise here:

Babel Enterprise 1.0 version.

BTW I’ve noticed recently quite a few of the tools that’s I’ve marked for posting require some kind of registration to access to the download.

Are you guys still interested in such things? As I tend to ignore it if it requires my details and find something else.

    I don’t mind registration what with
    http://www.fakenamegenerator.com/
    and the myriad of disposable email address services there are these days. Of course I hide my IP too.

    I’m gonna check and see if there’s a Babel for Kubuntu Feisty Fawn. Wish me luck.

    Darknet: It is always good to know about new tools and the work you are doing for the community is highly appreciated. But as you said… you don’t feel comfortable doing registrations then i think its ok if you skip the tools which require registrations…

    I usually skip to download a tool if it needs more than one step, like downloads on rapid(yeah right)share, that’s why I rather use mediafire.com….

    and yes it is a nice find :0
