The audit service uses the following files:
The /etc/security/audit_class file defines the audit classes. Audit classes are groups of audit events. You use the class name when configuring auditing with the auditconfig command to preselect the classes whose events you want to audit. The classes accept prefixes to select only failed events or only successful events. For more information, see Audit Class Syntax and the audit_flags(5) man page.
A role that has been assigned the Audit Configuration rights profile can modify the definitions of audit classes. This administrator can define new audit classes, rename existing classes, or otherwise change existing classes by editing the audit_class file in a text editor. For more information, see the audit_class(4) man page.
The /etc/security/audit_event file contains the default audit event-class mappings. You can edit this file to change the class mappings. If you change class mappings, read the changed mappings into the kernel with the auditconfig -conf command. You can also refresh the audit service. For more information, see the audit_event(4) man page.
The /etc/syslog.conf file works with the audit_syslog plugin to store audit records as text summaries. The syslog.conf file can be configured to enable the syslog utility to store audit records. For an example, see How to Configure syslog Audit Logs.
