tripwire (simple and effective)


I'm running a home web server and would like to create a simple policy for intrustion decection that is very secure. The default policy has a long list based on RH7 and I'd like to trip it down to be very simple.

I assume that I should leave the default...
"Tripwire Binaries"
"Tripwire Data Files"
"Invariate Directories" (/, /home, /etc)
"Temporary directories"

What is the recommended policy for kepting thing lean and tough? Is a single "handle-all" segment the right track...

/sbin -> $(SEC_CRIT) ;
/bin -> $(SEC_CRIT) ;
/usr/sbin -> $(SEC_CRIT) ;
/usr/bin -> $(SEC_CRIT) ;
/usr/local/bin -> $(SEC_CRIT) ;
/etc/group -> $(SEC_CRIT) ;
/etc/security -> $(SEC_CRIT) ;
/usr/lib -> $(SEC_BIN) ;
/usr/local/lib -> $(SEC_BIN) ;
/etc/rc -> $(SEC_CONFIG) ;
/var/spool/cron/crontabs
...

Depends on how you look at it, what's managable, readable (reports), practical (I'm running Aide BTW). On "volatile" systems I split running cfg's per kernel, system binaries+libs+config, daemon groups, like that. On systems where nothing changes much throwing it all on one heap could be easier.
