LSAT – Linux Security Auditing Tool


Linux Security Auditing Tool (LSAT) is a post install security auditing tool. It is modular in design, so new features can be added quickly. It checks inetd entries and scans for unneeded RPM packages. It is being expanded to work with Linux distributions other than Red Hat, and checks for kernel versions.

It (for now) works under Linux (x86: Gentoo, RedHat, Debian, Mandrake; Sparc: SunOS (2.x), Redhat sparc, Mandrake Sparc; Apple OS X).

      Sourceforge was having some issues last night so it wasn’t always responding with a successful HTTP code, so the link was marked as broken. It should be ok now.
