The BART feature of Oracle Solaris enables you to comprehensively validate systems by performing file-level checks of a system over time. After installation, the pkg verify command confirms that your source and destination package contents are identical. After package verification, BART manifests can easily and reliably gather information about the files on a system.
BART is a useful tool for integrity management on one system or on a network of systems. A system's files can be compared to the system's original files, and to other system's files. The reports might indicate that a system has not been patched, an intruder has installed unapproved files, or an intruder has changed the permissions or contents of sensitive files, such as the root-owned files.
