xinetd vs Tripwire
Got RH 8 installed om my laptop, but i want to secure it as much as I can before go networked.
In RH 8 xinetd is installed by default. But I wonder should I aslo use Tripwire?! Isn't xinetd an substitute for tripwire and inetd?! Or I am I wrong?!
Since the computer is pretty new installed I want to re-compile it soon, should I wait to install Tripwire until I got the kernel "lighter", because of to many Trip-log-messages?!
I've heard of AIDE.. is it better then Tripwire?!
(that's alot of question, sorry... but I'm a curious newbie that want a stabel system ).
Thanx in advance...
