LUNAR – UNIX Security Auditing Tool

LUNAR Lockdown UNix Auditing and Reporting is a script that generates a scored audit report of a Unix host’s security. It is based on the CIS Benchmark and other frameworks. Where possible there are references to the CIS and other benchmarks in the code documentation.

It will be possible to run the audit mode verification on the system without making any changes and this is useful to understand what are the pass / fail rate on the targeted host.
