audit_user(4)                    File Formats                    audit_user(4)



NAME
       audit_user - per-user auditing data file

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/security/audit_user

DESCRIPTION
       audit_user is an access-restricted database that stores per-user audit-
       ing preselection data. You can  use  the  audit_user  file  with  other
       authorization  sources, including the NIS map audit_user.byname and the
       NIS+ table audit_user. Programs use the getauusernam(3BSM) routines  to
       access this information.

       The  search order for multiple user audit information sources is speci-
       fied in the /etc/nsswitch.conf file. See nsswitch.conf(4).  The  lookup
       follows the search order for passwd(4).

       The  fields  for each user entry are separated by colons (:). Each user
       is separated from the next by a newline. audit_user does not have  gen-
       eral read permission. Each entry in the audit_user file has the form:

       username:always-audit-flags:never-audit-flags

       The fields are defined as follows:

       username                User's login name.



       always-audit-flags      Flags specifying event classes to always audit.



       never-audit-flags       Flags specifying event classes to never audit.



       For  a complete description of the audit flags and how to combine them,
       see audit_control(4).
