Hi Team,

We use AIX trusted execution in our environment for some of critical AIX servers. The application is such that it undergoes some or other update very frequently and we have to repeatedly whitelist files in TSD manually. This becomes tedious at times. We would like a feature to be added to TE in order to automate the whitelisting of files in TSD.

    Are you, or have you considered, using a separate file. If I understand the documentation - when adding or querying an alternate file, the option to use is <-f filename>, but when performing a scan - it would be

    An alternate file might help with managing your whitelist.

    So, curious to hear if you have used this option, or not, already.
