Lynis is an auditing tool for Unix (specialists). It scans the system configuration and creates an overview of system information and security issues usable by professional auditors.

This software has not the intention to be an all round solution for creating a "safe system", but to assist in automated audits. The software can be used in addition to other software, like security scanners, system benchmarking and finetuning tools.
