“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

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

including the permissions, inode, acess time, modified time etc.
and will store them in the aide.db file.”
