KEYCHEST agent is a lightweight software application. Once installed and given a scope for audits, it will pull information about network endpoints. It will then regularly check with the KEYCHEST service whether there are any audits pending. If the KEYCHEST service requires an audit of an endpoint, the agent will open a tunnel for the audit execution.

KEYCHEST agents are available as Windows service and also as a Python package distributed via PyPi so it can be installed with standard Python packaging tools, e.g., pip.
