DESCRIPTION
The twadmin utility is used to perform certain administrative functions related to Tripwire files and configu- ration options. Specifically, twadmin allows encoding, decoding, signing, and verification of Tripwire files, and provides a means to generate and change local and site keys. Creating a configuration file (--create-cfgfile) This command mode designates an existing text file as the new configuration file for Tripwire. The plain text configuration file must be specified on the command line. Using the site key, the new configuration file is encoded and saved. Printing a configuration file (--print-cfgfile) This command mode prints the specified encoded and signed configuration file in clear-text form to standard output. Replacing a policy file (--create-polfile) This command mode designates an existing text file as the new policy file for Tripwire. The plain text policy file must be specified on the command line. Using the site key, the new policy file is encoded and saved. Printing a policy file (--print-polfile) This command mode prints the specified encoded and signed policy file in clear-text form to standard output. Removing encryption from a file (--remove-encryption) This command mode allows the user to remove signing from signed configuration, policy, database, or report files. Multiple files may be specified on the command line. The user will need to enter the appropriate local or site keyfile, or both if a combination of files is to be verified. Even with the cryptographic signing removed, these files will be in a binary encoded (non-human-readable) form. Encrypting a file (--encrypt) This command mode allows the user to sign configuration, policy, database files, or reports. Multiple files may be specified on the command line. The files will be signed using either the site or local key, as appro- priate for the type of file. To automate the process, the passphrase for the key files can be included on the command line. Examining the signing status of a file (--examine) This command allows the user to examine the listed files and print a report of their signing status. This re- port displays the filename, file type, whether or not a file is signed, and what key (if any) is used to sign it. Generating keys (--generate-keys) This command mode generates site and/or local key files with names specified by the user.

Mutually exclusive with (-s). -s, --silent, --quiet Silent output mode. Mutually exclusive with (-v). -c cfgfile, --cfgfile cfgfile Specify the destination of the encoded (and optionally signed) configuration file. -S sitekey, --site-keyfile sitekey Use the specified site key file to encode and sign the new configuration file. Exactly one of (-S) or (-e) must be specified. -Q passphrase, --site-passphrase passphrase Specifies passphrase to be used with site key for configuration file encoding and signing. Valid only in conjunction with (-S). -e, --no-encryption Do not sign the configuration file being stored. The configuration file will still be compressed, and will not be human-readable. Mutually exclusive with (-Q) and (-S). configfile.txt Specifies the text configuration file that will become the new configuration file. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Printing a configuration file: -m f --print-cfgfile -v --verbose -s --silent, --quiet -c cfgfile --cfgfile cfgfile -m f, --print-cfgfile Mode selector. -v, --verbose Verbose output mode.
