Oracle Solaris auditing keeps a record of how the system is being used. The audit service includes tools to assist with the analysis of the auditing data.

This chapter introduces how auditing works in the Solaris Operating System. The following is a list of the information in this chapter.

For planning suggestions, see Chapter 29, Planning for Oracle Solaris Auditing. For procedures to configure auditing at your site, see Chapter 30, Managing Solaris Auditing (Tasks). For reference information, see Chapter 31, Solaris Auditing (Reference).
