Install the Tripwire file system monitoring tool
Authored by: gurple on Sep 30, '03 05:06:24PM

It's been a pretty long time since I've managed a Tripwire installation and I can't quite remember all that it can do. However, for basic secure comparison of MD5 checksums Checkmate is a great way to go. It's a PrefPane item so you interact with it through the System Preferences utility.

I've been using Checkmate for several years now and am quite happy with it. Just remember to update your checksums after a large OS update or whenever you make a change to one of the watched files.
