Report system security vulnerabilities

TIGER, or the 'tiger' scripts, is a set of Bourne shell scripts, C programs and data files which are used to perform a security audit of different operating systems. The tools can be both run altogether once to generate an audit report of the system and they can also be run periodically to provide information on changes to the system's security once a security baseline has been defined. Consequently, they can be used also as a host intrusion detection mechanism.

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.

Debian's TIGER incorporates new checks primarily oriented towards Debian distribution including: md5sums checks of installed files, location of files not belonging to packages, check of security advisories and analysis of local listening processes.

This package provides all the security scripts and data files.

Package version:1:3.2.3-10

Tiger for Debian


Some of the checks do not apply completely to Debian systems
or Debian's defaults are somewhat different. This might lead to
somethings being reported as a security issue when they really 
aren't (known in the security field as 'false positives')
In some cases this might be Tiger's problem (of it being an old UNIX
auditing program) or it might
