Desktop Security Assistant

Project Description

Desktop security assistant

An easy to use tool for desktop users to improve the security of their system.

It scans your Linux desktop or laptop and provide a set of suggestions.

How is it different from security scanners like Tiger?

  • Focused on desktop users rather than servers administrators
  • Provides suggestions on every aspect of security: software and hardware configuration and usage
  • Hints on risk level and work required to mitigate it

Development status

In development. Testing and contributions are welcome!



  • Implement more checks
  • Package for Debian
