Intrusion detection system

The Advanced Intrusion Detection Environment does everything Tripwire (tm) does and more. The program creates a database from the regular expression rules that it finds from the config file. Once this database is initialized you can use it to verify the integrity of the files. It has several message digest algorithms that are used to check the integrity of the file. More algorithms can be added with relative ease. All of the usual file attributes can also be chacked for inconsistencies. It can read databases from older or newer versions.
