About Rootkit

This website is a personal initiative of Michael Boelen. As an open source developer interested in information security, he created several tools like a malware detection software and Linux/Unix auditing software.


The primary 3 goals we want to achieve:

  • Spread open source software
  • Help people secure their machine
  • Protect their privacy

This website is possible with the help of:

Providing security auditing and hardening solutions

Mission of CISOfy

Provide security professionals (up to the CISO) with powerful tools to measure security efforts. You are the one to score, we simply assist.

Focus on Unix and Linux

With our background in Unix and Linux based environments, our tools are specialized in this area. Where other tools support multiple different platforms, we apply the principle as in most Unix utilities: do one thing and do it well. This way we can support all Unix flavors and versions, so you benefit from the best possible knowledge. Our main audience are Chief Information Security Officers, IT managers, security professionals, (security) consultants and IT engineers.
