Security audits with Lynis


Lynis is a powerful tool for finding vulnerabilities on computer systems. The Community version is suitable for home users and admins with a manageable number of computers, while the Enterprise version is recommended for larger installations. The Enterprise version also comes with additional features, such as a web-based control panel and plugins that let you check file integrity. With the help of an extension for pentesting, Lynis is also suitable for playing out attack scenarios like the ones that occur in real life. Every security-conscious user should have Lynis in their toolbox.
