Security Management with Open Source Tools

  • This document describes the work done during the Research Semester in Summer 2006 of Prof. Dr. Stefan Wohlfeil. It is about Security Management tasks and how these tasks might be supported by Open Source software tools. I begin with a short discussion of general management tasks and describe some additional, security related management tasks. These security related tasks should then be added to a software tool which already provides the general tasks. Nagios is such a tool. It is extended to also perform some of the security related management tasks, too. I describe the new checking scripts and how Nagios needs to be configured to use these scripts. The work has been done in cooperation with colleagues from the Polytech- nic of Namibia in Windhoek, Namibia. This opportunity was used to also establish a partnership between the Department of Computer Science at FH Hannover and the Department of Information Technology at the Polytechnic. A first Memorandum of Agreement lays the groundwork for future staff or student exchange.
