Description Steve Grubb 2016-01-20 12:13:02 EST
Description of problem:
The AUDIT_NETFILTER_PKT audit events are not normalized. They swing fields in and out based on settings rather than changing the value of the event. Here's one example in ./net/netfilter/xt_AUDIT.c:

        if (ntohs(ih->frag_off) & IP_OFFSET) {
                audit_log_format(ab, " frag=1");

frag should always be set like:
audit_log_format(ab, " frag=%d", ntohs(ih->frag_off) & IP_OFFSET);

There was a discussion upstream about some enhancements that could be made to make iptables based audit events more usable:

Closing this as we are tracking upstream RFEs on GitHub now:
