BART Security Considerations

The bart command is used to create and compare manifests. Any user can run this command. However, users can only catalog and monitor files that they have permission to access. So, users and most roles can usefully catalog the files in their home directory, but the root account can catalog all files, including system files.

BART manifests and reports are readable by anyone. If BART output might contain sensitive information, take appropriate measures to protect the output. For example, use options that generate output files with restrictive permissions or place output files in a protected directory.
