unsigned event [,token_type, token_val] ... , 0 );
Audit Library - libaud.a and libaud.so
The event value of the operation being audited.
A type and value pair defining the data to be placed in the audit
This routine is an interface to the audgen() system call. It accepts a
variable number of arguments describing the event and audit data, then
calls audgen() with the appropriate parameters to generate the audit
record. This routine is found in the library and is loaded with the
libaud.a and libaud.so -laud option.
The event argument indicates the event value of the operation being
audited, as defined in audit.h. The value of event must be between one of
the following two values:
· MIN_TRUSTED_EVENT and MIN_TRUSTED_EVENT + N_TRUSTED_EVENTS -1
· MIN_SITE_EVENT and MIN_SITE_EVENT + n_site_events -1
The constants are defined in audit.h. The definition of n_site_events is
determined by executing the sysconfig -q sec audit_site_events command on
the running kernel.
The argument pairs containing token_type and token_val describe the data
that is to be placed into the audit record. The argument token_type
describes the type of data, as defined in the set of public tokens (in
The argument token_val should be set to the value of the token when the
token is represented by an int or long data type, or be a pointer to the
data described by the token when the token references a character string,
or other variable length field or structure.
The audgen() system call is privileged.
The maximum number of token_type, token_val pairs allowed is 128, with no
more than 8 instances of any one token_type.
On successful completion, a value of 0 is returned. Otherwise, a value of
-1 is returned and the global integer variable errno is set to indicate the
The user is not privileged for this operation.
The value supplied for an argument is invalid.
The audit record exceeds the audit record size.
Indicates an attempt to use a system call that is not configured.
The tokenmask data is invalid.
The size argument is non-zero, and the userbuff argument is invalid.
A value referenced by the argv argument is invalid.
