Samhain Alternatives

    Samhain is described as 'The Samhain host-based intrusion detection system (HIDS) provides file integrity checking and log file monitoring/analysis, as well as rootkit detection, port monitoring, detection of rogue SUID executables, and hidden processes'. There are four alternatives to Samhain for Linux. The best alternative is Tripwire, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Samhain are AIDE (Free, Open Source), Mugsy (Free, Open Source) and syschangemon (Free, Open Source).
