3.4. AIDE Configuration

the configuration file in /etc/aide.conf is the primary area of configuration for aide. At present CSI demands the files below be tracked. This is a minimum configuration and admins are encouraged to add additional files. /etc/aide.conf should be owned by root and mode 600.


What is listed here is by all means a work in progress. Generally maintaining a list of files to check is a losing propistion, always playing catchup. Those with experience using aide or other IDS systems are encouraged to contact the CSI devel list to come up with a more comprehensive test
