Just to add a little more info to Rod's post, what you most likely
stumbled upon is Tripwire, Inc. (www.tripwire.com). What you're looking
for is the open source Tripwire software at www.tripwire.org, which is
originally developed and supported by Tripwire, Inc. (by the way, if you
google "tripwire" those are links one and two respectively.)
