Technical notes for editors

Tripwire for Servers 3.0

Tripwire for Servers is the core integrity technology deployed on servers across the enterprise. Version 3.0 makes policy file generation simple with a graphical interface and enables system administrators to build customized responses to specific integrity violations for instant remediation. Key feature upgrades include:

· Policy Wizard. The Policy Wizard scans server file systems to make creating a Tripwire policy easy and intuitive. It also provides the user with suggested policy file details and advice on which files and objects should be monitored.

· Integrated Command Execution (ICE). The addition of ICE provides the ability to create specific automated responses to specific integrity violations, allowing rapid remediation when an undesired change occurs. This highly flexible feature allows for certain actions based on integrity violations, such as shutting down a server, closing a port on a firewall or triggering the restoration of a compromised file.

· XML Reporting. Reporting via HTML generates integrity notifications with hot links to critical changes, while XML provides a mechanism to integrate integrity reports with existing reporting programs.
