NAME

       checksecurity - Run a collection of simple system checks

SYNOPSIS

       checksecurity

DESCRIPTION

       The  checksecurity  command  runs  a  small collection of simple system
       checks which are designed  to  catch  a  few  common  security  issues.
       checksecurity is run by cron in a daily basis.

CONFIGURATION

       The  checksecurity.conf  file  defines several configuration variables:
       MAILTO, CHECK_DISKFREE, CHECK_PASSWD and CHECK_SETUID LOGDIR.  Each  is
       described below.

       The  checksecurity program works with a collection of plugins which are
       located in /usr/share/checksecurity and are configured individually  by
       their own configuration file.

       CHECK_PASSWD  If  this is set to TRUE then the check-passwd script will
       be invoked.  This script is designed to  report  upon  system  accounts
       which  have  no  passwords.  CHECK_DISKFREE If this is set to TRUE then
       the check-diskfree script will be invoked and will allow an alert to be
       sent  if there is any mounted partition is running short on disk space.
       CHECK_SETUID If this is set to TRUE then the check-setuid  script  will
       be  invoked,  this  will compare the setuid binaries upon the system to
       those that existed previously and show the differences.
