Citrix/Linux and versions

1) Is citrix based on linux technology? Reason I ask is our 3rd party IT produced a list of public facing infrastructure, and for the citrix access gateway they've declared it as "a linux virtual appliance"?

2) Also, is there anyway to see what version of a citrix access gateway is running? Do citrix release secrutiy updates for their products? If so how can we see if we are the latest supported versions? Any tools that can assist in this area?

Citrix CAG is a linux based appliance.
Other Citrix software are Windows-based (XenApp XenDesktop)
Citrix publish updates at their Support-sites.

The version and Patch-Levl are visible within the management GUI.

Would the CAG be installed on top of a windows server? Or could it be installed on top of a linux server? I dont even know if you can install a linux "appliance" on a windows server?

Could you provide a screenshot? Does the mgmt GUI show "missing patches","Out of date status" or just version numbers?

the CAG is an appliance. means: hardened linux with ebedded software.
Virtual appliances for xenServer and VMWare are also availeble. But these are also linux with software.
