EICS is a tripwire like filesystem integrity checking utility.

You configure the compilation by typing ./configure. This will install the program with prefix /usr like this:
Binary goes to : /usr/bin/eics
Configuration : /usr/etc
Database files : /usr/lib

You can configure the places files go mainly with the following parameters
--prefix=DIR Defines where you want to put the files
--sbindir=DIR Where 'eics' goes. This defaults to $prefix/sbin
--sysconfdir=DIR Configuration and keyfiles will be placed into this directory. Defaults to $prefix/etc
--with-database-dir=DIR Database files will be placed here. Defaults to $prefix/lib/eics
--with-root-prefix=DIR This is for package builders. When the files are copied this is appended to the paths. Does not affect the program itself.
--mandir=DIR Where man pages go. Defaults to $prefix/man

Main features:

  • Easy configuration files
  • Wide range of checks
  • Regular expression support and globbing(from version 3)
  • Fast check even on large systems(from version 3)
  • Uses OpenSSL
  • Uses DSA signaturing to ensure database integrity
  • No password needed for checking filesystem
