Building SATAN/SANTA Extensions - or - My Summer Project
Oct 06, 1995
The Security Administrator's Tool for Analyzing Networks (SATAN) is a program that interrogates machines to evaluate the security of their network-related services. The current version of SATAN (v1.1.1) scans for ten security problems. It also is fairly easy to create your own scanners to incorporate into SATAN. I will explain the general steps in building scanners and configuring SATAN to use them. I will also show some examples of simple scanners written in Perl, Expect, and UNIX shell.
