InProtect 0.80.0 Beta Released!

So we have *finally* managed to get the 0.80.0 Beta out the door, unfortunately the new packaged does not include any of the new info for the install or upgrade (there are twelve of us working on this). I'll be covering some of these topics in follow up articles over the next day or so.

Get the InProtect 0.80.0 Beta Here!


For now, let's talk about some of the major changes that we have incorporated into this version.

Gui:
  • Completely revamped menu system, access control driven.
  • User customizable dashboard.
  • Html and PDF report formats match.
  • Exportable xls reports.
  • Cleaned up excessive and unneeded sql queries to enhance speed.
  • Role-Based permissions.
  • Exception list for hosts.
  • Host specific lookup capabilities.
  • Cleaner interface.
Database:
  • All passwords are encrypted using user definable cryptographic standards such as blowfish.
  • Sensitive data is encrypted.
  • Database structure modified to allow for role-based permissions.
  • Database structure modified to enhance and improve large query response (including indexing).
Engine:
  • Max server scans are now run in a single session rather than multiple individual sessions, this reduces the load on both the nessus scanner and the InProtect console server.
  • Encryption and decryption functions added for sensitive data.
  • Multiple unneeded queries removed to enhance performance.
  • Query function creation and destruction cleaned up to enhance performance.
That is basically a quick run-through of the new features (there are more.. but these are the big ones IMHO). There are a few additional perl libraries that are not yet mentioned in the documentation contained in the 0.80.0 tarball but are required in addition too those mentioned in the documentation, I'll list them here for you.

New Perl libraries:
  • Crypt::CBC
  • MIME::Base64
  • IO::Socket
  • POSIX
  • Socket
This should be some good info to get you started for now, but as I said earlier, I will be posting some additional information (detailed info) for new installs and upgrades over the next few days. I will also try to update the official wiki and FAQ with these instructions.

So, for now feel free to download and play with it, let me know what you think, I can usually be found in #inprotect on freenode.

Cheers,
JJC

Hi,

Thanks for the work but the MySQL dump doesn't work. I am running MySQL 4.1.20 and get the following errors:

When I run the install.sh script
selecting number 3 for a Web console and DB install I get the
following error on the DB set-up part:

Please enter mysql root password:
ERROR 1046 (3D000) at line 22: No database selected

I've also tried to create the tables manually using the 'clean' sql script but it gives the error:

ERROR 1064 (42000) at line 509: You have an error in your SQL syntax;
check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '(`pn_uname`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1' at line 15

No prob, let me know if you want me to test anything else or provide more info,

Can you paste that whole sql statement from line 509 on...

Also, just want to be sure that this is a new install and not an upgrade from a previous version?

If you are able to jump onto freenode and #inprotect I could try to troubleshoot live...

Hi,

Heath has a released a patch file for the sqldump, but for some reason it is complaining about the patch:

Ok, I just published a new entry with the URL to a tarball with a working clean install sql script.

Excellent thanks JJC, I'll give it a shot.
