Linux Security Notes - AIDE File Integrity

Oct 22, 2009, 02:03 (0 Talkback[s])

"It allows to take snapshots of all the major configuration files, binaries as well as libraries stats. And helps to find which binaries have been changed in case of compromisation of the system. This can be downloaded from http://sourceforge.net.

"...This will create a new database called aide.db.new. This command will scan all the files in the /etc/ directory and stores them as a database called aide.db.new.

"Note: AIDE uses the stat command to get the details of the file including the permissions, inode, acess time, modified time etc. and will store them in the aide.db file."
