Planning a Single System Audit Trail

Note -  Implementing a single system audit trail applies only to the audit_binfile plugin.

Systems within a single administrative domain can create a single-system image audit trail.

    To create a single-system image audit trail for a site, follow these requirements:

  • Use the same naming service for all systems.

    For correct interpretation of the audit records, the passwd, group, and hosts files must be consistent.

  • Configure the audit service identically on all systems. For information about displaying and modifying the service settings, see the auditconfig (1M) man page.

  • Use the same audit_warn, audit_event, and audit_class files for all systems.

Refer to How to Plan Who and What to Audit for additional considerations for enabling auditing on the systems.
