Audit Service

Oracle Solaris provides an audit service that collects data about system access and use. The audit data provides a reliable time-stamped log of security-related system events. This data can then be used to assign responsibility for actions that take place on a system.

Auditing is a basic requirement for security evaluation, validation, compliance, and certification bodies. Auditing can also provide a deterrent to potential intruders.
