IPSO/Secure Platform audit

Hi list,

I'm currently reviewing a Check point/Nokia box and a Secure Platform
manager. The settings in Voyager are all good, and likewise the Web
GUI of the SPLAT manager is fine, they're both patched and the policy
is also clean - but I want to ensure the o/s themselves are ok. I've
checked that there aren't any users there shouldn't be in /etc/passwd,
checked there aren't any unknown processes (at least any visible
ones), any unusual open ports or any strange scripts scheduled to run
in crontab. The firewall logs themselves aren't showing anything

I am concerned that a previous administrator may have left himself
access by the back-door somehow - but am not in a position to rebuild
them to be sure. What else would you lot check for?
