The tools rely on specialised external security tools such as John the Ripper, Chkroot and integrity check tools (like Tripwire, Integrit or Aide) for some of the tasks. The periodic review mechanism relies on the use of the cron task scheduler and an email delivery system.
TIGER has one primary goal: report ways the system's security can be compromised.

This package provides all the security scripts and data files.
