Why this tool?
Tools like otseca help with data collection. This could be useful for system administrators to collect data on a regular interval. This data then can be compared with a future data capture. Another possibility is to use it during pentesting. In that case one should have already obtained root access, as the tool requires this as well.
How it works
The tool is written in shell script and uses the Bash interpreter. Its main component is a wrapper to include other commands, which each in turns collect the related data. The HTML report is created by collecting the output and wrapping it up with HTML tags.
The otseca name is derived from 'other security awareness'.
Usage and audience
otseca is commonly used for configuration audit, penetration testing, or security assessment. Target users for this tool are auditors, pentesters, and system administrators.
