"Tripwire is a straightforward tool with a single purpose: detect any variance in file integrity. This means that Tripwire can absolutely, unequivocally determine if a protected file has been altered in a way that violates the policy set by the administrator. Tripwire can also determine if files have been added to or deleted from protected system directories and much more."
"Tripwire was written to work under Red Hat but with a few easy modifications to the install.cfg file and the policy text file you can make it work under SuSE 6.x."
"With this NHF I have included a SuSE specific policy text file called suse.txt. The policy text file is used to create a Tripwire policy file. Note, since I do not have X on my system I removed references to the X files from the suse.txt file, if you want to add them back, just copy the X references from the twpol.txt file and add them to the suse.txt file. If your already confused don't worry, this is really easy and you'll understand more as you get further into this NHF."
