How can I monitor when programs are downloaded?

What software is there that will alert me whenever a program is downloaded without my knowledge or consent?
On Linux there is no standard way to know that. If you use integrity-checking software such as Tripwire or AIDE, it can alert you whan a new file is copied in an important location on a server.
