IBM Security Guardium - CAS Agent needs to check Teradata OS level configuration - Guardium VA
We use IBM Infosphere Guardium tool V9.6 in order to monitor the traffics and Guardium has another feature called "Vulnerability Assessment" for Teradata 14.10 under SUSE LINUX SLES10.
CAS (Configuration Auditing System) is an agent installed on the database server and reports to the Guardium system whenever a monitored entity have changed, either in content or in ownership or permissions
IBM recommended to install CAS agent on Teradata OS in order to collect all the OS level configurations for those Guardium VA test conditions. This CAS agent will be running on Teradata OS and runs RPM command to check the configuration values ( eg. TDGSS,TDGTW Version,Patch Level, PUT application port value,TDM port,File ownership and Permissions on TD essential files).
Kindly let me know if anyone has installed and tested this CAS (Configuration Auditing System) on Teradata database server and NO harm to database server.
