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   auditing  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   specified   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 general 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).
