NAME
       twintro - introduction to Tripwire software

DESCRIPTION
       Tripwire	2.4 is a file integrity	assessment tool	for UNIX-like systems.
       Rather than preventing an intruder or virus from	attacking system
       files, Tripwire detects intrusions when they do occur. By comparing
       system files and	directories against a previously stored	"baseline"
       database, Tripwire finds	any additions, deletions, or changes to	speci-
       fied properties.	 This allows the system	administrator to determine the
       extent of the problem and begin necessary damage	control.

       After Tripwire is installed on a	system,	the following four commands
       are used:

	  tripwire(8) is used for most of the basic operations of the soft-
		 ware.	This includes creation of the Tripwire database, and
		 checking the integrity	of the filesystem against that data-
		 base.

	  twadmin(8) is	used to	create,	encode,	and sign Tripwire policy, con-
		 figuration, and key files, and	for various administrative
		 functions.

	  twprint(8) prints Tripwire database and report files in a plain text
		 format.

	  siggen(8) is a file utility that displays hash values	for files.

       In addition to the command references listed above, the following three
       man pages provide information on	important components of	the Tripwire
       package.

	  twfiles(5) provides an overview of the various files created and
		 used by Tripwire, including default locations and settings.

	  twconfig(4) explains the configuration file, which is	used to	set
		 system-specific information that affects Tripwire operation.

	  twpolicy(4) explains the policy file,	which specifies	the files and
		 directories Tripwire should check, and	how they should	be
		 scanned.

       Using the --help	flag with any Tripwire command (e.g. tripwire --help)
       will print a short summary of the command modes for that	command.  If a
       mode selector is	also specified (e.g. tripwire --check --help), a mode-
       specific	usage message will be displayed.  Using	the all	argument with
       the --help flag (e.g. tripwire --help all) will print detailed usage
       messages	for all	modes of the specified command.
