AIDE

AIDE (Advanced Intrusion Detection Environment) is a file and directory integrity checker. It creates a database from the regular expression rules that it finds from the config file. Once this database is initialized it can be used to verify the integrity of the files. Several message digest algorithms are used. All of the usual file attributes can also be checked for inconsistencies.

      Tripwire, although well established, is not GPLed. It is free in a monetary sense (IF you are not a commercial entity) but not in a free speech sense. AIDE is GPLed. If you don't know what that means, see www.gnu.org

      RE: Tripwire
      The latest version of Tripwire is now commercial. I believe the older versions are still free to use.
