Tool and Usage
The ssh_scan utility is a SSH configuration and policy scanner maintained by the Mozilla Foundation. It helps to secure Linux systems running the OpenSSH.
This tool is light on its dependencies, as it only uses Ruby and BinData. The scanner is simple to use, as it is limited in the number of parameters and options. There is also the ability to show the results on the screen or export the data to a JSON file. The latter is great if you want to do further processing of the details, or simply store them for later comparison.
