Projects / integrit


integrit is an alternative to file integrity verification programs like tripwire and aide. It helps you determine whether an intruder has modified a computer system. integrit's major advantages are a small memory footprint and simplicity. It works by creating a database that is a snapshot of the most essential parts of your computer system. You put the database somewhere safe, and you can then use it to make sure that no one has made any illicit modifications to the computer system. In the case of a break in, you know exactly which files have been modified, added, or removed.

            another c++ project on the same topic
            here are links for 'osec' integrity checker tool used in ALT Linux:



            you might be interested in sharing some effort.

            PS: how does wmnd do? :)

            This tool is pretty nice and it has most of the things I wanted
            from a file integrity verification system: constant datbases,
            file attributes like inode, pemissions, number of links, uid,
            gid, file size, access and modification times, and of course
            SHA checksums. It's statically linked with OpenSSL and CDB,
            so things don't get messed up if someone poisons your libs.
            Very simple config file syntax (syslog.conf like) and checksum
            generation for the current/known state database so you know
            if it's been tampered with. See the homepage for more info.

            Keep up the good work, I'd like to see this included in Debian ;*)
