secheck: The system security check by email.

Welcome to the website of 'secheck.' As I'm much more concerned with getting a fully functional and pretty script written, the web page may become neglected at points in time. Please be patient. I will update the website with every major release of secheck. -Bram

Secheck is a script designed for linux users to keep up with some security issues on their system. secheck runs nightly and checks on such things as: SUID files, passwordless accounts, open ports, users on the system with root access, who has su'd to root, etc. For more information, please see the about page. For contact information, mailing list subscription/archives, please see contact. -Bram

Well, secheck-0.03 was released today, the 22nd. This version includes some minor display fixes, along with a few additional features, such as: Checking for SGID files as well as SUID, checking for world-writable directories, checking for files with no owner, and an imporved way of keeping data, along with an install script. Secheck no long writes to /tmp, it keeps all it's files in /dir/.secheck where /dir is a directory you specify. This version also copies your current /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow, /etc/inetd.conf, and /etc/group file and compares each night's versions to the baselines. The install script makes the process of installing much easier, but there are still a few variables to change in secheck, security.check, and See theA REDME for more information, and click here to go to the download page. 

The second release of secheck comes just a day after the first release... This one includes some additional items, as well as some options for emailing the output of ipchains/iptables denied packets. See the changelog on the download page for more information.

Today marks the official initial release of secheck. The first version is very basic and basiclly just takes a system snapshot at the time of running. This section will be included in all future releases of secheck, and will most likely stay exactly the same, with the exception of re-writing to improve the layout format.

I will be at Cansecwest May 1-3. See above link for more info. Logo
