Projects / md5mon


md5mon is a shell script that verifies files by computing their checksums. The script is suitable for use as a basic security checking tool from cron. It features configurable monitoring levels, local copies of find/md5sum, and integrity checks to prevent tampering with itself. It can also use a more secure shasum instead of md5sum.
