Safety and security of a system is of primary importance, especially of those working in an environment where external threats roam freely. To make sure that one’s system is truly protected, one has to take certain measures like setting up a firewall and installing various software which specialize in removing infections that affect the system. But since prevention is better than cure, it is always a matter of pride if one can audit his/her system for the loopholes existing in the system. A good security audit can reveal the various gaps existing in the system and hence help the owner of the system get it back in shape. Chris Nowell Unix Security Analyzer from ThreeShield Information Security is one such tool which helps perform security audits for systems, personal and enterprise level systems.

The script is simple enough for system administrators to understand and hence provides a comprehensive way of performing security checks. It was originally designed for administrators to check whether their networks are vulnerable but its simplicity and ease of use along with its importance, led on to it being used as a layman’s tool.
