Subject: Is there a good checksum system for OPENBSD?


> I'm looking for a Program that compares md5 file checksums in a file
against actual files and reports discrepancies.   A commercial program like
"Tripwire" does this,  but isn't there an Open Source program that can do
this.

other places where one would not expect files to be changed,   but would
easily identify trojans,  and other changes to executeable files and
binaries.

how long would it take to checksum thousands of files?
