Install and configure Tripwire from source
Authored by: winfred on Jan 12, '10 09:32:15AM
Wow, extensive howto, thanks.
If you don't like installing from scratch, there is a MacPorts compiled version available as well:
  • install MacPorts: http://www.macports.org
  • install Tripwire: port install tripwire
$ port info tripwire
tripwire @2.4.1.2, Revision 1 (security)
Variants:             universal

Description:          Tripwire software is a tool that checks to see what has changed on your system. The program monitors key attributes of
                      files that should not change, including binary signature, size, expected change of size, etc. Tripwire is originally
                      known as an intrusion detection tool, but can be used for many other purposes such as integrity assurance, change
                      management, policy compliance and more.

Install and configure Tripwire from source
Authored by: Blomma on Jan 12, '10 12:21:46PM

Wonderful hint with one exception, the version of tripwire that you link to seems to be based of tripwire-2.3.1 while the latest tripwire from the tripwire website is 2.4.1.2. I would advice to either go the macport route or just download the newer source from the tripwire site http://sourceforge.net/projects/tripwire/files/

What you have there is essentially a fork that seems to have been halted in development, the latest update being in 2004 to the site.

*Edit Dooh, not sure how i managed to make it a reply to the parent instead of making a new.
