In reference to this post: MIT Licensed Whitelisting Agents
I am just starting out in cyber security and one of the "tasks" that I was told to do was to install an MIT Licensed Whitelisting Agent. I am a bit confused on this topic because at first I thought it would be a service that I will just be installing or configuring similar to a firewall in windows where services & apps can be allowed/blocked. But when I searched into it all I saw are mostly guidelines on what "whitelisting" and "application whitelisting" is and on the link above I asked what does "MIT Licensed Whitelisting Agents" meant and I was told it was
a whitelisting agent software that's released under an MIT open source license
A little bit clearer on the subject I searched for softwares that are under the MIT license but didn't find what I was looking for. I thought after this I would see like a list of softwares that could help me but that was not the case. I'm still a little bit confuse on what it is though I know what it basically does. I just don't have the application to play around with and do tests.
The OS I'm currently working on is a CentOS 7 running on a virtual box and any software suggestion that's compatible to it would be appreciated. Thank you
