getaudit(NOW DEPRECATED) —
retrieve audit session state
system call retrieves extended state via
auditinfo_addr and length. It
uses the auditinfo_addr_t data structure supports
Terminal IDs incuding those with larger addresses such as those used in IP
version 6. It is defined as follows:
The ai_auid variable contains the audit identifier which is recorded in the audit log for each event the process caused.
The au_mask_t data structure defines the bit mask for auditing successful and failed events out of the predefined list of event classes. It is defined as follows:
The au_tid_addr_t data structure which includes a larger address storage field and an additional field with the type of address stored:
The ai_asid variable contains the audit session ID which is recorded with every event caused by the process.
The ai_flags variable contains flags that are opaque to the kernel and used by various consumers of the auditinfo_addr data. Please see the ⟨bsm/audit_session.h⟩ header file for more information and flag definitions for this platform.
Without appropriate privilege the audit mask fields will be set to all ones.
system call (NOW DEPRECATED) retrieves the active audit session state for
the current process via the auditinfo_t pointed to by
The auditinfo_t data structure (NOW DEPRECATED) is defined as follows:
The au_termid_t data structure (NOW DEPRECATED) defines the Terminal ID recorded with every event caused by the process. It is defined as follows:
getaudit_addr() function returns the
value 0 if successful; otherwise the value -1 is returned and
the global variable errno is set to indicate the
getaudit_addr() function will fail
The OpenBSM implementation was created by McAfee Research, the security division of McAfee Inc., under contract to Apple Computer Inc. in 2004. It was subsequently adopted by the TrustedBSD Project as the foundation for the OpenBSM distribution.
getaudit() in Mac OS X 10.7 to support longer
terminal addresses such as those used by IP version 6.
getaudit() is now deprecated and
getaudit_addr() should be used instead.
This software was created by McAfee Research, the security research division of McAfee, Inc., under contract to Apple Computer Inc. Additional authors include Wayne Salamon, Robert Watson, and SPARTA Inc.
The Basic Security Module (BSM) interface to audit records and audit event stream format were defined by Sun Microsystems.
