Lynis: Run a Security Audit on Linux for Free
This post walks through the steps of installing Lynis security auding software on both Ubuntu Server and Rocky Linux 9.
When developing for cloud or containers, you know you’re probably going to be working with Linux, UNIX, or some similar operating system. When that’s the case, you should also know how imperative that the OS be as secure as possible. After all, with the numerous moving parts of containers and the cloud, if your foundation is weak, everything could crumble.
That means you need to know the ins and outs and minutia of those platforms, especially regarding security.
The problem can be if you’re coming from either a MacOS or Windows background and you’re unfamiliar with Linux. That’s when a tool like Lynis comes in handy.
