Lynis will not harden your system. It will proceed to scan your system, and if vulnerabilities are found, it will tell you about them and how to harden your OS.
How it works :
Lynis performs hundreds of individual tests. Each help to determine the security state of the system.
Lynis scanning is "opportunistic". That means it only uses what it can find. No installation of other tools needed, so you can keep your systems clean.
By performing opportunistic scanning, the tool can run with almost no dependencies. The more it finds, the deeper the audit will be. In other words, Lynis will always perform scans that are customized to your system. No audit will be the same!
