tripwire question

Post by dishawjp »

Hi All,

I installed tripwire on my RH 8 box a few months ago. For a while everything seemed to be fine. Lately though it seems to not be updating properly when I run the "tripwire --update -r /var/lib/tripwire/report/name_of_file.twr"

It seems to do its thing and then asks for the tripwire local password and then tells me that it's updated the database and all, but if I run a "tripwire --check" immediately afterwards, it still reports back a bunch of errors.

Since I usually run it as a daily cron job, I've been getting daily mail to root about all the bad things happening to my computer. Problem is that I don't believe it any more and what good is intrusion detection if you don't trust teh reports?

Is it likely/possible that my computer has been so severely compromised that I could get hundreds of errors within minutes of updating the tripwire database or is it more likely that tripwire is not updating itself properly?

Thanks for any help!

Jim

It's hard to tell without actually seeing one of your reports and your config file.

Thanks Voidmain,

The following is a "# tripwire --check" I just ran.

I'm not sure what you mean by the config file, but if you could tell me which file to search for I'll pass it along.

As you can see this error report is so long that it's ridiculous.

Voidmain,

Here is the printout I got after completing the update:


[root@eunix report]# tripwire --update -r /var/lib/tripwire/report/eunix-20030417-135615.twr
Please enter your local passphrase:
Wrote database file: /var/lib/tripwire/eunix.twd
[root@eunix report]#



But if nothing has changed, I could run a # tripwire --check again right now and still get the whole huge error report again. That's what it's been doing recently. Actually I had intended to copy and paste the output of the update, but as soon as I entered ":wq" it disappeared.

Any information would be very appreciated.

Jim

You are probably running the default policy file which usually comes configured to check for things that you don't even have installed. You need to customize this file to fit your system and then rebuild your policy and database. The source for your config is probably in /etc/tripwire/twpol.txt and the source for your config is probably in /etc/tripwire/twcfg.txt. For each of the error you are getting about the file not existing, comment that out in your twpol.txt file and rebuild your tripwire policy/database.

I usually run /etc/tripwire/twinstall.sh after modifying my twpol.txt and then do a "/usr/bin/tripwire -m i" to initialize the database. If you have all of the things commented out that should be then you should not get any more filesystem error messages for missing files. You can make it as lax or as strict as you want. tripwire is one of the less intuitive security tools but it can be very useful if properly configured.

On a default tripwire install and commenting out the files that do not exist and running the commands as described above, this is what I get when I run a check immediately following:

When you installed tripwire it should have also installed a script to run a check daily "/etc/cron.daily/tripwire-check". You can run that script manually or let it run daily. There is not much to the script:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh
HOST_NAME=`uname -n`
if [ ! -e /var/lib/tripwire/${HOST_NAME}.twd ] ; then
        echo "****    Error: Tripwire database for ${HOST_NAME} not found.    ****"
        echo "**** Run "/etc/tripwire/twinstall.sh" and/or "tripwire --init". ****"
else
        test -f /etc/tripwire/tw.cfg &&  /usr/sbin/tripwire --check
fi
The daily output should end up in root's mailbox.

It is something that everyone should be running who has a critical system attached directly to the Internet (and then some). It keeps track of critical system files and if something changes it will let you know. If someone cracks your server and installs a root kit you will know about it.

Of course this is just one of many elements that you should have in your bag of security tricks. For instance, one security practice that you should follow is to keep your system up to date with security updates as soon as they become available. Another security practice that you should follow is to not run unnecessary services and to restrict access to the ones that you do have running via firewall and other access methods. These are "preventative" practices that will help prevent your system from being cracked. Tripwire is one of a few types of "detection" practices. That is if your "preventative" measures failed you may detect that your system has been cracked with tripwire.

There are also network IDS (intrusion detection system) security measures that you can implement with programs such as Snort. Snort helps detect skr1pt kiddies who are trying to pick your locks and logs it in a database. All of these pieces fit together and make for a good security plan. "Prevention" alone is not enough as a cracker may know about a hole that has no patch. "Detection" helps you quickly determine whether you have been cracked. Then you might want to periodically scan your own network with tools like "Nessus" to help ensure you don't have any gaping wide holes. Use of encryption on any network traffic also helps to make your system more secure (use ssh rather than telnet, imaps rather than imap, pop3s rather than pop, etc, etc).

Bottom line is you can't be too security conscious and just covering one piece is not enough. Tripwire covers one of the pieces. If you are alerted that system files have changed that only root has access to you are pretty much tipped off that you have been cracked. If you were smart you were sending your system logs to a different server that is dedicated to collecting system logging from all of your systems. Also if you were smart you were also running an IDS like Snort so you can look through the logs of who came in from where at what time so you have plenty of information to relay on to the FBI as quickly as possible (depending on how critical your systems are).

Thanks yet again Voidmain,

I'm working on editing down my twpol.txt now. It'll take a while, but at least then Tripwire should be doing waht I want.

I've already downloaded Snort, but haven't installed it yet. When I get this stable though, expect me to be back begging for help again.

Voidmain did it!!

As if there were ever any doubt. All I have to do now is make one more minor change to get rid of that "localhost" error and I'm good to go. Thanks again Viodmain, if you're interested, my current report is as follows:

No problem. Yeah to get rid of the localhost error just change the "HOSTNAME" var in your twpol.txt from localhost to eunix, but you probably already figured that out.

No. :) just kidding. Yeah there is nothing to it really, once you figure out how it works. It should be on your Red Hat CD, or if you have apt installed you can just:

# apt-get install tripwire

Once installed it should automatically be set up to run every day. It will not actually work properly until you go through what we went through in this thread though.
