Question

How can I monitor a specific file on tripwire?

Let´s say that we have a file on “/etc/config.sh”. I would like to monitor this specific file with tripwire and make it generate form me a report if any changes are made on the file. Also, I would like tripwire to generate a report every 15 minutes. The report filename should have date and time on it.

Hey there redesbr,

We have a tutorial on setting up tripwire that will get you most of the way there: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-tripwire-to-detect-server-intrusions-on-an-ubuntu-vps

After getting it up and running, it is just a matter of configuring it to match your specific needs.
