Credentialed Checks on Unix

The process described in this section enables you to perform local security checks on Unix based systems. The SSH daemon used in this example is OpenSSH. If you have a commercial variant of SSH, your procedure may be slightly different.

  2. User credentials and sudo access or credentials for su access
