Lynis (security scanner and compliance auditing tool)
IT audit, penetration testing, security assessment, system hardening, vulnerability scanning
Lynis can detect vulnerabilities and configuration flaws. Where a typical vulnerability scanner will just point out vulnerabilities, Lynis aims for an in-depth audit and continuous improvement. For this reason, it needs to be executed on the host system itself. By seeing the system from the inside out, it can provide more specific details than the average vulnerability scanner.
