FreeBSD Tools: portaudit – FreeBSD’s Third Party Security Audit

Portaudit is a software vulnerability auditing tool for FreeBSD systems. FreeBSD's Portaudit provides a system to check if installed ports are listed in a database of published security vulnerabilities.

The ports-mgmt/portaudit port polls a database for known security issues. This database is updated and maintained by the FreeBSD Security Team and ports developers.

To begin using Portaudit, install it from the Ports Collection:

cd /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/portaudit
make install clean
