CU-Boulder now requires that all highly confidential data servers have host-based intrusion detection software installed and used by the server administrator. To help facilitate this requirement, OIT and IT Security have developed helpful support resources for server administrators, as well as two recommended no-cost solutions called Tripwire Enterprise and OSSEC.
Host-based intrusion detection software (HIDS) is to be installed and used by the server administrator.
Attending a no-cost training session facilitated by IT Security is required to acquire the software and support for both Tripwire Enterprise and OSSEC. These trainings will give you a security refresher, general information about HIDS, and instructions for how to acquire site licenses and help. Contact the IT Security Office to sign up for IT Security training.
