    The following page should help you out with setting up and customizing Tripwire. I found it to be quite useful and hope it helps someone else.

    Don't forget to run the init after the installation and setup scripts have been executed to create a baseline.

    /opt/tripwire/sbin/tripwire --init

    If you make changes to your twpol.txt or twcfg.txt then you MUST have TW make it into a binary and sign it.

    For config file updates:
    /opt/tripwire/sbin/twadmin --create-cfgfile --site-keyfile /opt/tripwire/etc/site.key /opt/tripwire/etc/twcfg.txt
    Please enter your site passphrase:

    For policy file updates:
    /opt/tripwire/sbin/twadmin --create-polfile --cfgfile /opt/tripwire/etc/tw.cfg --site-keyfile /opt/tripwire/etc/site.key /opt/tripwire/etc/twpol.txt
    Please enter your site passphrase:

    To create a new baseline:
    /opt/tripwire/sbin/tripwire --init
    Please enter your local passphrase:

    To run an integrity scan with a report:
    /opt/tripwire/sbin/tripwire --check --interactive
