This section highlights information for existing customers about important new features in the Oracle Solaris audit service.
Audit records from an Oracle Solaris system can plug in to Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall, which can then be used to obtain information about audited events on Oracle Solaris systems.
The audit configuration files, audit_class, audit_event, and audit_warn, have two package attributes set. The preserve=renamenew attribute enables the files to be modified, and the modifications are retained across package updates and package fixes. The overlay=allow attribute enables the files to be replaced by files in packages that a customer creates.
