General Meeting on Wednesday - 12 September 2018

The St. Louis Unix Users Group (SLUUG) general meetings are usually on the second Wednesday of each month.

We start the general meeting with a basic session (usually focused on personal computing); which may include either amazing graphical packages, blinking lights, command line wonders, demonstrations of useful applications, displays of newly discovered web sites, major resolution of long standing anomalies, quantum discoveries, superb tutorials, or shifts in both time and space. Then we will have our usual quick welcome, introduction, administrative announcements, and a Questions and Answers Period. After all that, we take a break before our main event (usually focused on enterprise computing).

Basic Session

The BASIC portion for September will be Network Command Line Tools by Bryce Meyer

Normally Abstract/Background/Details/History/Outline/Summary/Walk-through will be listed when available.

This tutorial might show factors common with both personal and enterprise computing.


The amazing Bryce_Meyer is always informative.

Main Event

The MAIN presentation for September is Lynis Security Auditing Software by David Forrest

Lynis is an extensible security audit tool for computer systems running Linux, FreeBSD, macOS, OpenBSD, Solaris, and other Unix-derivatives. It assists system administrators and security professionals with scanning a system and its security defenses, with the final goal being system hardening.

  • Simpler audit output
  • Interactive mode
  • Can run under cron job
  • Read ahead, from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, about Lynis audit software and rootkit scanner.


    By now, you should know that David (Dave) Forrest likes using IPv6.
