AuditTAP 5.7.1: Debian & SUSE hardening checks, current CIS checks and more

Attention Windows and Linux users – there is a new update for AuditTAP! Read here what version 5.7.1 has to offer.

Linux support is progressing

AuditTAP used to be a Windows only tool. But that has been a thing of the past since release 5.0! Since then, our developers have been implementing more and more new features for Linux systems.

After AuditTAP 5.6 introduced a “real” hardening check for Ubuntu 20.04 and Ubuntu 22.04, version 5.7.0 and 5.7.1 now also include tests for Debian 11 and SUSE Linux Enterprise 15, using the recommendations of the Center for Internet Security (CIS).

This means that AudiTAP now generates complete hardening reports for Ubuntu, SUSE and Debian systems based on the latest CIS standards. You can then use the findings from the reports to improve Linux System Hardening.

For other Linux distributions, our free tool continues to generate the reduced “Linux Security Base Data” reports. For now! Because our team is working hard to support other distributions such as Red Hat, Fedora and others.

Windows hardening checks according to the latest recommendations

We have also updated the existing Windows checks. For example, the hardening of your Windows 11 system is tested according to Microsoft Security Baseline 22H2 and CIS Benchmarks 2.0.

We have also slightly revised the design of the reports. The presentation looks a little cleaner than before. And, as always, there were plenty of bug fixes and other resolved issues when we upgraded to the latest version.

You can find an overview of all the improvements and changes that have been incorporated into the new AuditTAP here on GitHub.
