Enhanced AIX and SuSE Auditing
Tenable Network Security's research group recently introduced support for credentialed patch auditing of SuSE Enterprise 9 and 10 for both the Server and Desktop editions. Plugins which support patch auditing of these operating systems have been available to Registered Feed, Direct Feed and Security Center users since late 2007. All plugins are published as part of the SuSE Local Security Checks Nessus plugin family.
In addition, patch auditing of AIX 5.x and 6.x is also fully supported through the AIX Local Security Checks plugin family. Customers parsing AIX logs collected with the Log Correlation Engine can now also make use of new updates which analyze login and system activity. These normalized events automatically feed into the automatic statistical event profiling and event correlation of the Log Correlation Engine.
