"If you're interested in Tripwire then let me be the first to welcome you to the world of the paranoid system admins. Tripwire can be a vital tool in detecting a comprimise of your system."

"Tripwire generates a database of the most common files and directories on your system. Once it is generated, you can then check the current state of your system against the original database and get a report of all the files that have been modified, deleted or added."

"This comes in handy if you allow other people access to your machine and even if you don't, if someone else does get access, you'll know if they try to modify files such as /bin/login etc."
