Labrador was designed from scratch to fill in a gap in
current integrity checkers. While there are several great tools out
there, most of them are either too intrusive/complicated for
non-experienced users to try or too incomplete do fulfill people's
security needs, whether they're advanced systems administrators or
simply regular users concerned with their data.
Labrador was created with power and simplicity in mind. It focuses on
several checks that you can make in a file or directory (folder) tree,
such as checksum hashes, not allowing new or executable files in a
given directory, among many others.
All rules are defined in a simple text file (the rules file)
where you put them as cascating <tags> for
activation/deactivation. Then all you need to do is tell the names of
files and directories to be checked with the previously specified
rules. All rules names were selected to be as clear as possible, so you
don't have to spend hours memorizing them - A small glimpse at a rule
tag will be enough for you to know exactly what it does (instead of
some obsure "m", "J", "q" directives found in similar programs).
