 Checking System Integrity with tripwire

In the previous article, I introduced file integrity utilities and demonstrated how to install the tripwire utility. Let's carry on where that article left off.
Full Story is here

"The premise behind tripwire is that a database is "initialized" using the parameters contained in a policy file. This initialization takes a snapshot or baseline of the files on the system. You then periodically do an "integrity check" to see which files have changed, investigating why any files have changed."
