TARA

Tiger Analytical Research Assistant (TARA) is an upgrade to the TAMU 'tiger' program. tiger is a set of scripts that scan a Unix system looking for security problems, in the same fashion as Dan Farmer's COPS. Since 'tiger' has not been updated since 1994, there were numerous changes made to the 'systems' directories. Output was streamlined to provide a more readable report file. Also, minor bugs in the 'scripts' directory were corrected. TARA was tested under Red Hat Version 5.2 (kernel 2.0.35), SGI IRIX 6.5, and SunOS 5.7.

    New Tiger versions include TARA fixes
    Please notice that the new (post-2.2.4) Tiger (www.tigersecurity.org) versions include TARA improvements and much more. If you want to be up-to-date (to new features, and new checks) you should be using the 3.x releases of Tiger, available at
    Savannah. Tara seems to be upgraded to newer Tiger releases but, for the moment, the latest Tiger releases are more recent than Tara's.
