System Calls                                          getaudit(2)



NAME
     getaudit, setaudit, getaudit_addr, setaudit_addr -  get  and
     set process audit information

SYNOPSIS
     cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lbsm -lsocket -lnsl -lintl [ library ... ]
     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <bsm/audit.h>

     int getaudit(struct auditinfo *info);

     int setaudit(struct auditinfo *info);

     int getaudit_addr(struct auditinfo_addr *info, int length);

     int setaudit_addr(struct auditinfo_addr *info, int length);

DESCRIPTION
     The getaudit() function gets the audit ID, the  preselection
     mask,  the  terminal  ID  and  the  audit session ID for the
     current process.

     Note that getaudit() may fail and return an E2BIG  errno  if
     the address field in the terminal ID is larger than 32 bits.
     In this case, getaudit_addr() should be used.

     The setaudit() function sets the audit ID, the  preselection
     mask,  the  terminal  ID  and  the  audit session ID for the
     current process.

     The  getaudit_addr()  function  returns  a  variable  length
     auditinfo_addr  structure  that  contains  the audit ID, the
     preselection mask, the terminal ID, and the audit session ID
     for  the  current  process.  The terminal ID contains a size
     field that indicates the size of the network address.

     The  setaudit_addr()  function  sets  the  audit   ID,   the
     preselection  mask,  the terminal ID, and  the audit session
     ID for the current process. The values are  taken  from  the
     variable  length  struture  auditinfo_addr.  The terminal ID
     contains a size field that indicates the size of the network
     address.

     The auditinfo structure is used to pass  the  process  audit
     information and contains the following members:

     au_id_t     ai_auid;        /* audit user ID */
     au_mask_t   ai_mask;        /* preselection mask */
     au_tid_t    ai_termid;      /* terminal ID */
     au_asid_t   ai_asid;        /* audit session ID */

System Calls                                          getaudit(2)



     The auditinfo_addr structure is used  to  pass  the  process
     audit information and contains the following members:

     au_id_t        ai_auid;      /* audit user ID */
     au_mask_t      ai_mask;      /* preselection mask */
     au_tid_addr_t  ai_termid;    /* terminal ID */
     au_asid_t      ai_asid;      /* audit session ID */

RETURN VALUES
     Upon  successful  completion,  getaudit()  and    setaudit()
     return  0.  Otherwise,  -1  is  returned and errno is set to
     indicate the error.

ERRORS
     The getaudit() and  setaudit() functions will fail if:

     EFAULT
           The info parameter points outside the process's  allo-
           cated address space.

     EPERM The process's effective user ID is not superuser.

USAGE
     Only processes with the effective user ID of  the  superuser
     can successfully execute these calls.
