Linux Meetup April 6, 2009: `Backtrack`

Bob C.
Austin, TX
Post #: 52
Here's what we covered at the April 6, 2009 Linux Meetup:

  • A facility called 'monit', which will 'monitor' Linux processes:­ - I couldn't get it working without a bit of hacking/manipulation.
  • A facility called 'Bastille', which is an interactive server hardening program that comes in source form or as a pre-compiled rpm: http://bastille-linux...­ - Again, I couldn't get it working without some 'path hacking'.
  • Finally, we covered 'Backtrack', a security suite with penetration testing tools. http://www.remote-exp...­ Backtrack is an installable or live-boot distribution based upon Slackware/Slax. It contains a full array of hacking tools that are available for testing and assessment.
