Tripwire is an intrusion detection system. It monitors file systems and stores various attributes about the files for later comparison. When it detects that a monitored file has changed since the baseline scan, it alerts someone (e.g. system administrator, data security, etc.) via e-mail who can either verify that the change was authorized and update the baseline, or have the change reversed. The Open Source product is based on code provided by Tripwire Inc.. The commercial offering includes a robust reporting and security policy management built around the core product.
