linux default iconRFC Publisher's description

RFC (Remote Filesystem Checker) is a set of scripts that aims to help System-Administrators.

RFC (Remote Filesystem Checker) is a set of scripts that aims to help System-Administrators run a filesystem-checker (like tripwire, aide and so on...) from a "master-node" to several "slave-nodes" using ssh, scp, sudo and few other co

Here are some key features of "RFC":

??? crate/update FileSystem-Checker's (FSC) database
??? execute FSC and create a log-report
??? allow parallel execution, mass-check and mass-upgrade!
??? support non-interactive operations
??? use scp/ssh for all connections
??? use an arbitrary port for ssh/scp connections (may be different for each host!)
??? send (ONE) email to administrator(s)
??? rotate logs, databases and other files
??? support for AFICK, AIDE and INTEGRIT FileSystem-Checkers
??? check users creation/removal
??? check group creation/removal
??? check if someone changes UID, GID or shell
??? check for group's members or ID changes
??? check for SUID/SGID on remote host via a separate PERL script
??? check if remote-host is up before run checks on it (via nmap)
??? kill the processes that take too long (you can set an arbitrary timeout value)

What's New in This Release:

A new function that replaces the "seq" command, which is not available on all systems. A fix for a small bug that caused a "cp: missing destination file" error. A fix for an error that caused RFC to suggest a bad "sudo" setup.
??? A new function to check whether a node is alive without the "nmap" req

System Requirements:

??? bash on any (?) posix system
??? base utils (chown, chmod, adduser, sed, grep...)
??? a mail program ("mail" itself is great)
??? nmap on master node
??? ssh/scp client & ssh-keygen on master-node
??? ssh/scp server on slave-nodes
??? sudo on slave-nodes
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
