*** End of report ***
This is the bottom half of the errors that were generated by running tripwire --check

Is there anything that i should do to correct these errors (make the directories myself?) or are they acceptable?

Oh so you know i am running Fedora 15 with kde

Also when i run "tripwire --test --email blah@gmail.com" i didn't recieve any email is this because of tripwire or gmail or should i have tripwire deliver the mail to my box through the linux "mail" command and if that is a better option (which i wouldn't mind) how do i do that with the command line "--email root@localhost" ?

Also here is the output from /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6

i know i may need to change the localhost.localdomain because many servers will not accept mail from localhost so what would be a correct addition to /etc/hosts to allow sendmail to send emails from my box

again if it would be easier just to send to root@localhost i am okay with that too...

If anyone has any input i would sure appreciate any help and again sorry for the long output.

-Thank you for any help or suggestions

The first part of the output you posted
Code:
Tripwire Data Files 100 1 0 0 
...
Total objects scanned: 33928
Total violations found: 1
is just a summary which says that you added one tripwire data file and nothing else has changed since you took the initial snapshot. Specifically,
Code:
Added:
"/var/lib/tripwire/BlackHawk.home.twd"
The violation severity value of 100 means that is really bad if you didn't do it yourself. But you did do it yourself, so no worries there.

Code:
...
File system error.
Filename: /usr/bin/vimtutor
No such file or directory
...
For some reason tripwire could not find or could not access many files when you ran the check, but could access them when you made the snapshot. Is it possible that you made the snapshot as root but ran the check as ordinary user? You should run it as the root user.

I find it useful to update the database immediately after installing any software using
Code:
tripwire --check --interactive
You can then check anything you want to look into further and then enter your local key to update the database, but keeping the checked item as a unresolved violation which will continue to appear each time you run tripwire --check until you have resolved it and don't check it.

Quote:
i didn't recieve any email is this because of tripwire or gmail
Do you have a mail server installed and configured to only send and recieve mail locally, for example email from tripwire to your root user account? Be careful if so to check that your computer doesn't try to lookup a local address using an external DNS server!

Thank you so much for your reply...

could you elaborate a bit more on the severity value being 100?

also i am looking for a convenient way to display warnings generated by tripwire, i would really appreciate if you could give me some examples either with the emailed alerts or with rsyslog.

oh when i did tripwire --test --email user@localhost it worked perfectly

and what i am wondering if there is anyway to exclude those errors that are on the report?


Again thank you so much for your help and time, really it is so appreciated

Look at the headings
Code:
Rule Name 	Severity Level 		Added 		Removed 	Modified
In the entry
Code:
Tripwire Data Files 100 1 0 0
the severity level is 100, the highest. That means this would be very alarming if you did not make that change yourself. But you did, when you ran a command which created this file
Code:
/var/lib/tripwire/BlackHawk.home.twd
so it's fine.

Quote:
oh when i did tripwire --test --email user@localhost it worked perfectly
You got the email, but did you check that no external DNS requests were made when you ran this test?

Quote:

Not me, sorry.

Code:
tripwire --test --email blah@gmail.com
I hope you are not planning to email your tripwire output to your gmail account! As someone said, it is a very bad idea to store or process sensitive personal information on a computer owned by someone else. Tripwire output is very sensitive indeed.

Quote:

Yes, and this is covered in the tripwire man pages. But there may be little point in running tripwire if you don't plan to study the output.

okay here is the thing when i did tripwire --check i got about 100+ file not found or directory not available errors generated by tripwire so i edited /etc/tripwire/twpol.txt and commented out all the errors that were generated.

the next thing i did was create a new policy file with:

twadmin --create-profile -S site.key /etc/tripwire/twpol.txt

then i removed the database file in /var/lib/tripwire/

rm blackhawk.home.twd

then generated a new database file with tripwire --init

with all this a new policy file tw.pol was generated and the errors are now longer being displayed here are my questions...

1) if i want to edit the policy file do i just remove tw.pol and reedit twpol.txt and generate a new policy file the same way is this considered the correct way?

2) how can i lower the severity level from 100 i removed the [x] from files that are modified or generated for example snort log files.. will this lower the severity level?

3) i still can't find much on how to have the alerts generated by tripwire emailed to root@localhost

4) VERY IMPORTANT: can anyone provide a good tutorial on how to run tripwire as a daemon... here is what i am really looking to do. I want tripwire to run at boot time and do 1 integrity check a day and generate any alerts by email to root@localhost if anyone could provide a good link to do that i would be very grateful.

Again, thank you all for your time and suggestions and help.

I hope this doesn't mean what I think it means.

No, the correct way is explained in the tripwire man pages. Maybe print them out and study them with a highlighter?

No, the severity level indicates how serious the violation is if you cannot explain it as due to some legitimate cause, like yourself installing new software. They don't change and are not supposed to change.

This happens by default unless you've messed up the configuration, which I think you have done.

I think you should read the tripwire man pages and start over with a new snapshot, and I think you should monitor more closely what happens when tripwire sends email. If you are really sending tripwire output to an external server, that is a very bad idea, because it is sent unencrypted and it also very sensitive.
