What is it?
Command line tool that computes file hashes traversing recursively through a directory structure. Known hashes are saved to file and they can be used to verify the original files or a copy of them.
Execute haskdeep without arguments and it will show you the help text:
user@host:~$ haskdeep Usage: haskdeep COMMAND [-c|--computation MODE] [-r|--root DIRNAME] [-k|--known FILENAME] Computes hashes and audit a set of files Available options: -h,--help Show this help text -v,--version Show version information -c,--computation MODE md5 | sha1 | sha256 | skein512 - default md5 -r,--root DIRNAME Root directory - default current directory -k,--known FILENAME Known hashes file - default known.haskdeep -e,--excl-regex REGEX Exclude files or directories based on regex -f,--incl-mod-from DATE Include files modified from yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ssZ -t,--incl-mod-upto DATE Include files modified up to yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ssZ Available commands: compute Computes file hashes and saves them to known hashes file audit Audits files comparing them to known hashes
create known hashes of files contained in a root directory (traversed recursively)
user@host:~$ haskdeep compute -c md5 -r myimportantfiles/ -k knownhashes.txt -e "tmp|\.log"
verify a copy of the same files comparing them with known hashes
user@host:~$ haskdeep audit -c md5 -r copyofmyimportantfiles/ -k knownhashes.txt -e "tmp|\.log"
