SLAD is a tool for performing local security checks against GNU/Linux systems.

SLAD has been primarily developed for the BOSS project to work together with Nessus to enhance its local scanning capabilities. For example, scanning for weak passwords with a tool like John-the-Ripper is something that simply cannot be achieved by a network scan.

Therefore, SLAD is required to be installed on every GNU/Linux system where local auditing needs to be done. SLAD can then be used as a stand-alone application or more conveniently through Nessus. For usage with Nessus two NASL plugins are provided for interfacing between Nessus and SLAD

The Version 2.0 provides a XML Interface for Parameters and easy integration of additional audit-parameters and tools. To help the administrator to integrate a new feature-set, a development-documentation is provided with the cvs.

SLAD has been tested and verified on the following platforms:

RedHat Fedora Core 3
SuSe 9.2
Debian 3.0 (woody)
Debian 3.1 (sarge)
Gentoo Linux 2004.3

SLAD is implemented in Perl and provides an extendable plugin architecture allowing to use various GPL-based security scanners and auditing tools under one common framework. Currently, SLAD comes packaged with


As a result SLAD delivers reports of these locally installed auditing and analysis tools. When used with Nessus the individual reports are wrapped into a standard Nessus report.

SLAD as well as the SLAD NASL Plugins can be downloaded from this Website in their current stable release V2.0.


You can use our "easy-to-use" GTK installer, this installer downloads the lastest SLAD Release Binary, and install it on the target system. You only need to provide the login for the traget system.
