BaseUnixOS.zsai: use for OS-related components only / exclude software applications

0 Votes

In BaseUnixOS catalogue currently there are both signatures for OS components AND for software applications like Apache Webserver httpd defined. Since there is an additional SAI "unix.zsai" in place (which should focus on software applications running on Unix/Linux), the idea is to group all the signatures:

- the signatures which are OS-specific (OS-components, OS-commands, OS vendor specific software) should be defined in "BaseUnixOS.zsai"

- the signatures which are related to standard software applications (like Apache Webserver) should be defined in SAI files like unix.zsai, windows.zsai - even if standard software applications will be installed during OS installation. 

In our enterprise environment we are not interested in the discovery of OS components. Therefore we did not activate the BaseUnixOS catalogue. But with current grouping of signatures this means that we are unable to discover some of the software applications (e.g. Apache httpd on Solaris).
