Unix Configuration Check Type

All Unix compliance checks must be bracketed with the “check_type” encapsulation and the “Unix” designation. Appendix A contains an example Unix compliance check starting with the check_type setting for “Unix” and is finished by the “</check_type>” tag.

This is required to differentiate .audit files intended for Windows (or other platforms) compliance audits.

Note: The file is read over SSH into a memory buffer on the Nessus server, and then the buffer is processed to check for compliance/non-compliance.
