Pakiti: A Patching Status Monitoring Tool

The Pakiti homepage is now at GitHub:

Pakiti provides a monitoring mechanism to check the patching status of systems.

Pakiti is using a client/server model, where clients run on monitored machines and send reports to the server for evaluation. After the client sends the list of installed packages, Pakiti server compares the versions against versions which Pakiti server obtains from packages repositories (ordinary packages repositories maintained by Linux distribution provider) and OVAL definitions from MITRE. Optionally client reports back the packages which should be upgraded, security updates are specially marked.

Pakiti uses a Web-based GUI that provides a list of the registered systems and the list of the pending patches for them. This helps the system administrator keep multiples machines up-to-date and prevent unpatched machines to be kept silently on the network.

Pakiti supports the major Linux distributions, in particular RedHat-based systems, SuSE, Debian, and Ubuntu.
