Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

System information..

I'd like to write a little program that determines the type of system one has. It would be able to report, among other things, processor type, system/bios type/ver #, and others.

This is a pretty open question. The techniques for obtaining this information are widely varied. In many cases, the best techniques work most of the time, but not all.

If you are running under Win32, the easiest way to obtain this sort of information is through Windows. The GetSystemInfo API function returns lots of information about the system an application is running on, including processor type and even the number of processors.
