Description Steve Grubb 2007-03-20 16:01:33 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #232967 +++

Description of problem:
There is not good way to audit syscalls that have bit mapped options. A patch
was sent to the linux-audit mail list adding this capability. This is not
strictly required for LSPP, but helps customers.

This bz is to track the user space piece of it.
Comment 2 Steve Grubb 2007-03-20 20:48:05 EDT
The patch introduces the mask and bit test operators for creating audit rules.
For example, if you wanted to audit chmod syscalls that change a file to be
executable, with this patch applied you would do this:

auditctl -a always,entry -S chmod -F arg1&0111

As its is now, you would have to audit all chmods and search for the ones that
have the execute bit set...this is wasteful to say the least.

audit-1.5.1 already has this capability, this is a backport.

Stated not required for evaluation.  Steve, can we remove the LSPP whiteboard
mark so it doesn't come up on list and won't be considered a blocker?
Comment 5 Steve Grubb 2007-03-27 17:25:28 EDT
The lspp.70 kernel tests good with the patch included.
