18.2. Configurations

Note: All the configuration files required for each software described in this book has been provided by us as a gzipped file, floppy.tgz for your convenience. This can be downloaded from this web address: https://www.openna.com/books/floppy.tgz You can unpack this to any location on your local machine, say for example /tmp, assuming you have done this your directory structure will be /tmp/floppy. Within this floppy directory each configuration file has its own directory for respective software. For example Tripwire-1.3.1. configuration file are organised like this:

                total 8
                -rwx------    1 harrypotter    harrypotter         504 Jun  8 13:00 tripwire.verify*
                -rw-------    1 harrypotter    harrypotter         611 Jun  8 13:00 tw.config
              
You can either cut and paste this directly if you are faithfully following our instructions from the begining or manually edit these to modify to your needs. This facility is there though as a convenience but please don't forget ultimately it will be your responsibility to check, verify, etc. before you use them whether modified or as it is.

To run Tripwire, the following files are required and must be created or copied to their appropriate directories on your server.

  1. Copy the tw.config file to the /etc directory.

  2. Copy the tripwire.verify script to the /etc/cron.daily directory.
