3samhainrc \- samhain(8) configuration file
7The information in this man page is not always up to date.
8The authoritative documentation is the user manual.
12The configuration file for
13.BR samhain (8)
14is named
15.I samhainrc
16and located in
17.I /etc
18by default.
20It contains several sections, indicated by headings in square brackets.
21Each section may hold zero or more
22.BI key= value
23pairs. Blank lines and lines starting with '#' are comments.
24Everything before the first section and after an
25.I "[EOF]"
26is ignored. The file may be (clear text) signed by PGP/GnuPG, and
27.B samhain
28may invoke GnuPG to check the signature
29if compiled with support for it.
31Conditional inclusion of entries for some host(s) is
32supported via any number of
33.BI @ hostname /@ end
35.BI @ hostname
37.BI @ end
38must each be on separate lines. Lines in between will only be
39read if
40.I "hostname"
41(which may be a regular expression) matches the local host.
43Likewise, conditional inclusion of entries based on system type is
44supported via any number of
45.BI $ sysname:release:machine /$ end
48.I "sysname:release:machine"
49can be inferred from
50.I "uname -srm"
51and may be a regular expression.
53Filenames/directories to check may be wildcard patterns.
55Options given on the command line will override
56those in the configuration file.
57The recognized sections in the configuration file are as follows:
59Boolean options can be set with any of 1|true|yes or 0|false|no.
61.I "[ReadOnly]"
62This section may contain
64.BI file= PATH
67.BI dir= [depth]PATH
68entries for files and directories to check. All modifications except access
69times will be reported for these files.
70.I [depth] (use without brackets)
71is an optional parameter to define a per\-directory recursion
74.I "[LogFiles]"
75As above, but modifications of timestamps, file size, and signature will
76be ignored.
78.I "[GrowingLogFiles]"
79As above, but modifications of file size will only be ignored if the size has
80.IR increased .
82.I "[Attributes]"
83As above, but only modifications of ownership and access permissions
84will be checked.
86.I "[IgnoreAll]"
87As above, but report no modifications for
88these files/directories. Access failures
89will still be reported.
91.I "[IgnoreNone]"
92As above, but report all modifications for these files/directories,
93including access time.
95.I "[User0]"
97.I "[User1]"
99.I "[User2]"
101.I "[User3]"
103.I "[User4]"
104These are reserved for user-defined policies.
106.I "[Prelink]"
107For prelinked executables / libraries or directories holding them.
109.I "[Log]"
110This section defines the filtering rules for logging.
111It may contain the following entries:
113.BI  MailSeverity= val
114where the threshold value
115.I val
116may be one of
117.IR debug ,
118.IR info ,
119.IR notice ,
120.IR warn ,
121.IR mark ,
122.IR err ,
123.IR crit ,
124.IR alert ,
126.IR none .
127By default, everything equal to and above the threshold will be logged.
128The specifiers
129.IR * ,
130.IR ! ,
132.I =
133are interpreted as 'all', 'all but', and 'only', respectively (like
134in the Linux version of syslogd(8)).
135Time stamps have the priority
136.IR warn ,
137system\-level errors have the priority
138.IR err ,
139and important start\-up messages the priority
140.IR alert .
141The signature key for the log file will never be logged to syslog or the
142log file itself.
