File Integrity Monitoring (OSSEC)

OSSEC is a file integrity monitoring application that records changes to a server's file system to help detect and investigate an intrusion or change. 

OSSEC is an open source tool that watches a server's file system. It documents changes to any file on the system and sends the change information to a remote OSSEC server. This change information provides extremely useful information when investigating security incidences.  

Supported Operating Systems include:

  • Windows
  • Mac OS X
  • Linux
  • AIX
  • Solaris
  • FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD

Getting started

Units can sign up for the OSSEC service by submitting a HelpSU request.
