[Box Backup] BoxBackup as a security tool
Thu, 16 Dec 2004 11:21:15 -0500
I was just looking at some security stuff for intrusion monitoring by
tools like Tripwire and AIDE, and realized something: BoxBackup does
file change monitoring, AND stores the filesystem state on a remote
machine which could be configured for boxbackup access but not login access.
This means that boxbackup could easily be a superior file-change
monitoring system without much effort. Also, backups and intrusion
monitoring are the two most neglected-but-important tools. Add a few
security monitoring features to boxbackup, and you cover both at once.
All in favor? opposed?
