Manipulation detection with AFICK



AFICK is not only quick to install, it is reasonably fast. A short command or a couple of clicks in the user interface are all it takes to check the system – assuming you have a workable configuration file, which takes more than just a few minutes to put together. Additionally, AFICK requires Perl and normally runs on the system it is supposed to monitor. With these limitations, AFICK cannot claim to be a full-fledged intrusion detection system, but it is nevertheless a useful component in a holistic security strategy.
