Selftesting programm

Hi !

I'm looking 4 the possibility to implement a selftest in memory (crc-check, md5, whatever) for a linux programm written in C.

The programm should start and check itself for correctness (integrity)

Any ideas or code to do this ?

Another thing i'm looking 4 is a possibility to selftest a running linux kernel im memory. Maybe there is already such a thing implemented in linux ?

Meanwhile i found the 'headlines' DigSig, Bsign, Umbrella, Tripwire, any suggestions ?

What i'm still missing is the ability for a programm to selfcheck itself while running (maybe get the hash to compare from the elf Bsign header ?)
