System Security Management
Sherpa is a tool for configuring and then checking system security via the console. Written in perl, it allows an admin to maintain a custom database of file and directory permissions and ownership attributes as local needs dictate. Any changes from the prescribed layout will be detected each time Sherpa is run. Also, Sherpa does some basic system checks (world-writable files, .rhosts and hosts.equiv files, etc.) that help the busy admin keep on top of a system.
