 Automating Security with GNU cfengine

Linux Journal tells us about cfengine.

"This is where GNU cfengine, by Mark Burgess, comes into play. It allows you to affect changes effortlessly across any number of dissimilar systems. Perhaps even more important, it provides automatic documentation of exactly what you did. You even can use a few comments to explain why you did it. Each of your systems become a member of one or more classes, and changes are made on a per-class basis. If a new system arrives, it automatically acquires the changes previously made to other members of its class."
