    I think there is more to it.
    This is not the same thing as tripwire or any other host based
    intrusion dection system.  This is more like the security auditing
    system that you would find described in the rainbow books.  You would
    find such an auditing system on a C2 trusted system or higher.  This
    is something that has been woefully lacking on linux systems.  We have
    had the mandatory access control lists.  This auditing system goes
    hand in hand with MACs.
    Don't forget to feed your brainworms chocolate covered mothballs or the pigs
    will eat grandma on the farm.
