VERIEXECCTL(8)          NetBSD 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 signatures 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
