Anyway, in addition to the regular checks and tests they perform in these
cases, I was asked whether there exists a system tool to verify the
integrity of the system configuration.

Well:

rpm --verify --all

sort of does that. Problem would be that you really can't trust rpm of the
running system, since you can't know if rpm, the database or any of the
stuff rpm uses are compromised.

I /think/ you can do that from the rescue system. I saw something of the sort in yast (rescue from dvd). I suppose it would use the rpm command in the live, but the rpm database in the hd... :-?
