VERIEXECCTL(8)			   BSD System Manager's Manual			   VERIEXECCTL(8)

NAME
     veriexecctl -- manage the Veriexec subsystem

SYNOPSIS
     veriexecctl [-ekv] load [file]
     veriexecctl delete file | mount_point
     veriexecctl dump
     veriexecctl flush
     veriexecctl query file

DESCRIPTION
     The veriexecctl command is used to manipulate Veriexec, the NetBSD file integrity subsystem.

   Commands
     load [file]
	   Load the fingerprint entries contained in file, if specified, or the default signa-
	   tures file otherwise.

	   This operation is only allowed in learning mode (strict level zero).

	   The following flags are allowed with this command:

	   -e	   Evaluate fingerprint on load, as opposed to when the file is accessed.

	   -k	   Keep the filenames in the entry for more accurate logging.

	   -v	   Enable verbose output.

     delete file | mount_point
	   Delete either a single entry file or all entries on mount_point from being monitored
	   by Veriexec.

     dump  Dump the Veriexec database from the kernel.	Only entries that have the filename will
	   be presented.

	   This can be used to recover a lost database:

		 # veriexecctl dump > /etc/signatures

     flush
	   Delete all entries in the Veriexec database.

     query file
	   Query Veriexec for information associated with file: Filename, mount, fingerprint,
	   fingerprint algorithm, evaluation status, and entry type.

FILES
     /dev/veriexec    Veriexec pseudo-device
     /etc/signatures  default signatures file

SEE ALSO

NOTES
     The kernel is expected to have the ``veriexec'' pseudo-device.
