I’ve been looking into something like Tripwire or its alternative, AIDE, to check the data integrity of binaries to ensure that there have been no malicious alterations. However, I do not run a server - I use Cloudflare/GoDaddy for that sort of thing, which is a bit freeing.
My question is, if I want such a tool is running a server a prerequisite? https://blog.rapid7.com/2017/06/30/how-to-install-and-configure-aide-on-ubuntu-linux/ and similar pages in the case of Tripwire lead me to believe that it is. Is there such a tool if I do not run a server, or do I need to be running one?
