Tamper Detection

With the Tamper Detection feature a user can remotely check if a set of resources monitored by the device have been tampered. In the proposed model the device may implement a set of tamper detection services each monitoring a group of resources.

When inquired by a user, the service can report about the integrity of the monitored resources and can report more properties about the status of the resources; the content of the properties depend on the specific implementation of the service.

To list the entries of all the tamper detection services managed by a device, go to the Device view, select the device and select the Tamper tab. The list of all the entries is displayed.

Each entry reports the following information:

Column Name


Service Id

A string that identifies the service represented by the entry

Service Name

The display name of the service represented by the entry

To check the integrity status of the resources select a service entry and click on the Status button in the tab toolbar:

To reset the integrity status select a service entry and click on the Reset button in the tab toolbar then click on Submit.
