How to install AIDE on CentOS

E-mail Print PDF

AIDE is a tool for monitoring file system changes. It can be used to detect unauthorized monitored files and directories.

AIDE was written to be a simple and free alternative to. Features currently included in AIDE are as follows:

  • File attributes monitored: permissions, inode, user, group file size, mtime, atime, ctime, links and growing size.
  • Checksums and hashes supported: SHA1, MD5, RMD160, and TIGER.
  • CRC32, HAVAL and GOST if Mhash support is compiled in.
  • Plain text configuration files and database for simplicity.
  • Rules, variables and macros that can be customized to local site or system policies.
  • Powerful regular expression support to selectively include or exclude files and directories to be monitored.
  • gzip database compression if zlib support is compiled in.
  • Stand alone static binary for easy client/server monitoring configurations.
  • Free software licensed under the GNU General Public License.

This document will help in installation & configuration of AIDE “Advance Intrusion Detection Environment” on Centos, I am assuming that you have installed Centos 5 with all necessary packages but minimal installation is preferred.

CentOS NTP Server

E-mail Print PDF


A time server is a server computer  that reads the actual time from a reference clock and distributes this information to its clients using a computer network. The time server may be a local network time server or an Internet time server. The most important and widely-used protocol for distributing and synchronizing time is the Network Time Protocol (NTP), though other less-popular or outdated time protocols continue in use.

Install the package using yum

$ yum install ntp
