RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Dmitri Pal 2017-08-07 12:51:34 UTC
Clevis UDisks2 support performs privileged operations on behalf of an unprivileged user. For the purposes of auditing, this privilege transition needs to be logged.

When this issue is addressed an audit event should show in the log as result of using clevis with a flash memory drive.

Comment 3 Nathaniel McCallum 2017-08-07 14:22:24 UTC
UDisks2 support currently logs messages to standard error for the purposes of debugging. However, we need to log all attempted key recoveries to the audit log since this recovery occurred on data obtained with elevated privileges.

Comment 16 Nathaniel McCallum 2018-01-08 15:25:46 UTC
Clarification: clevis-udisks2 does logging. Not the entire framework.
