Beltane is a web-based management console for the samhain/yule centralized file integrity / intrusion detection system. Within that system, yule is the central log server, while samhain is the client (or standalone) application to monitor file integrity (and eventually check for kernel-level rootkits or rogue SUID binaries).
Beltane is intended to be installed on the central log server, and to act as an administrative frontend. Beltane allows to
manage a database of installed clients (in XML format),
review client messages, acknowledge them interactively, and update the file signature databases of clients accordingly (i.e. without the need to run an update on the client).
This Handbook uses the following notation:
This Manual is a guide for installing and using Beltane. It was written in DocBook(SGML) and is available in several formats including SGML and HTML.
