Can you recommend any essential (but free) security tools to aid in performing security audits of corporate *nix servers?

Thanks

SARA hasnt been updated since 2009 - not that that automatically makes it a bad tool?

Will these tools run from a workstation, or do they need a server to run?

I am pretty sure they will run from a workstation.

I am so excited that I can't wait for the final version of backtrack to come out.
I am even planning on upgrading my laptop and wireless adapter.
