DESCRIPTION

       The twadmin utility is used to perform certain administrative functions
       related to Tripwire files and configuration options.  Specifically,
       twadmin allows encoding, decoding, signing, and verification of
       Tripwire files, and provides a means to generate and change local and
       site keys.

   Creating a configuration file (--create-cfgfile)
       This command mode designates an existing text file as the new
       configuration file for Tripwire.  The plain text configuration file
       must be specified on the command line.  Using the site key, the new
       configuration file is encoded and saved.

   Printing a configuration file (--print-cfgfile)
       This command mode prints the specified encoded and signed configuration
       file in clear-text form to standard output.

   Replacing a policy file (--create-polfile)
       This command mode designates an existing text file as the new policy
       file for Tripwire.  The plain text policy file must be specified on the
       command line.  Using the site key, the new policy file is encoded and
       saved.

   Printing a policy file (--print-polfile)
       This command mode prints the specified encoded and signed policy file
       in clear-text form to standard output.

   Removing encryption from a file (--remove-encryption)
       This command mode allows the user to remove signing from signed
       configuration, policy, database, or report files.  Multiple files may
       be specified on the command line. The user will need to enter the
       appropriate local or site keyfile, or both if a combination of files is
       to be verified. Even with the cryptographic signing removed, these
       files will be in a binary encoded (non-human-readable) form.

   Encrypting a file (--encrypt)
       This command mode allows the user to sign configuration, policy,
       database files, or reports.  Multiple files may be specified on the
       command line.  The files will be signed using either the site or local
       key, as appropriate for the type of file.  To automate the process, the
       passphrase for the key files can be included on the command line.

   Examining the signing status of a file (--examine)
       This command allows the user to examine the listed files and print a
       report of their signing status.  This report displays the filename,
       file type, whether or not a file is signed, and what key (if any) is
       used to sign it.

   Generating keys (--generate-keys)
       This command mode generates site and/or local key files with names
       specified by the user.
