lsat - a security auditing tool


lsat [OPTION]


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.

Output is in lsat.out. On subsequent runs, previous output is in lsat.old.

-m <distribution> Force a specific distribution test Names are: redhat, debian,
mandrake, solaris, gentoo
