[Tiger-announce] New Tiger release, version 3.2.2

From: tiger-announce
Subject: [Tiger-announce] New Tiger release, version 3.2.2
Date: Mon, 27 Aug 2007 21:34:08 +0200
User-agent: Mutt/1.5.16 (2007-06-11)

After a long time the new 3.2.2 release is available. This release is basicly
a bug fix release, introducing many of the changes available in CVS (and in
the patches introduced in the Debian packages) which have been generated over
the past time.

For the impatient, the new release is available now for download at

This release introduces support for some operating systems including Tru64,
Solaris 8/9 and improves the existing support of HPUX and Linux with new
security checks. It also fixed many (could say hundreds) of bugs in the code
and check scripts.

For deatiled information on this release see the CHANGES file in the sources.

Also, Tiger version 3.2.2 now includes the all new 'audit scripts' written by
Marc Heuse. 

One common problem when auditing the security of 'live' (production) systems
is that the administrator doesn't want the auditor to run a complex set of
scripts (such as Tiger). This set of scripts can be used for offline audit of
different operating systems. 

These scripts will recover all the information from a system and pack it into
a file so that the system can be audited based on this information. These
scripts are not intrusive (unlike the Tiger checks) and have been used in the
past in many different professional IT security audits.
