Updated: September 8, 2022

The STEALTH program performs File Integrity Checks on (remote) clients. It differs from other File Integrity Checkers by not requiring baseline integrity data to be kept on either write-only media or in the client’s file system. In fact, clients will hardly contain any indication suggesting that they are being monitored, thus improving the stealthiness of the integrity scans. In this tutorial, I will show you ways to install stealth Ubuntu 22.04.
