Re: What should a Debian-security metapackage should provide?
Wel... nessus is almost graphic also (although it does run on the CLI) so you
would just install the server (nessusd), and firestarter (see
http://sourceforge.net/projects/firestarter/) would also be out of the list.
We could maybe split it into security and network-analysis maybe (since most of
them are of that kind...)
