Lynis is a security auditing for Unix derivatives like Linux, BSD, and Solaris. It performs an in-depth security scan on the system to detect software and security issues. Besides information related to security, it will also scan for general system information, vulnerable software packages, and possible configuration issues.
We believe software should be simple, updated on a regular basis and open. You should be able to trust, understand, and even alter the software. Many agree with us, as the software is being used by thousands every day to protect their systems.

Main goals:
+ Security auditing (automated)
+ Compliance testing (e.g. PCI-DSS, HIPAA)
+ Vulnerability testing

The software aims to also assist with:
+ Configuration management
+ Software patch management
+ System hardening
+ Penetration testing
+ Malware scanning
+ Intrusion detection
