4.4. aide

Updated aide packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Advanced Intrusion Detection Environment (AIDE) is a program that creates a database of files on a system, and then uses that database to ensure file integrity and detect system intrusions.

Bug Fix

Previously, the aide utility incorrectly initialized the gcrypt library. This consequently prevented aide to initialize its database if the system was running in FIPS-compliant mode. The initialization routine has been corrected, and along with an extension to the libgcrypt's API introduced in the RHEA-2012:0486 advisory, aide now initializes its database as expected if run in a FIPS-compliant way.
All users of aide are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
