NAME

twconvert - convert v1.0 Tripwire databases to v1.1  

SYNOPSIS

twconvert  

DESCRIPTION

twconvert is a utility that converts all the base-64 values in a older database files (database formats 1 and 2) to that used in v1.1 (database format 3). twconvert reads in the database from stdin and outputs the converted database to stdout. No arguments are used.

twconvert automatically detects which database format the input database is using.

Because database version 4 contains more information than prior versions, version 4 databases cannot be converted from older versions. Instead, they must be reinitialized by Tripwire. (In this regard, twconvert is vestigal, but will undoubtedly be used in the future.)
