Why this tool?
The YASAT tool performs a system scan to detect configuration issues and possible improvements for hardening the system. Typically you would use this on new and existing systems.
How it works
YASAT uses a plugins directory where all tests are stored. This directory also contains data files. These data files are being used by the tests to check the system state.
YASAT uses some code components of Lynis. The development of YASAT itself seems to have stalled in the last few years. As Linux distributions continue to evolve, we suggest using the more active development tools, like Lynis.
Usage and audience
YASAT is commonly used for configuration audit, IT audit, or security assessment. Target users for this tool are system administrators.
- YASAT is written in shell script
- Command line interface
