SystemScan runs more than 600 tests which are then compiled into either CSV, HTML, Plaintext, or XML files. If you choose HTML option:
- The results are compiled into a clear and concise (mini-website) report complete with a risks and issues summary.
- Each test comes complete with a helpfile containing an explanation of the results as well as tips and tricks.
- No local webserver or external connection is required to create the reports, the idea being that you can transfer the reulting files to a PC or internal website where they can be viewed by auditors, managers, (external) consultants, and first-line support.
- Viewers do not need to apply for root access to view the results no no time has to be lost making costly and time consuming access requests.
SystemScan AIXonly uses standard AIX commands and is written using Korn/Posix shell scripts so all the tests can be viewed by auditors and security officers, and even amended or extended as required.
The idea is to eventually build an open-source type community that can make improvements and suggest new tests that can benefit others, or if preferred we can produce a tailored version/module(s) for your private use.
