Description Steve Grubb 2007-04-27 15:46:57 EDT
We need to review the audit labels and permissions given to all applications.
The following explains the audit systems privileges:

1) CAP_AUDIT_CONTROL - set loginuid, write/delete audit rules
2) CAP_AUDIT_WRITE - write event to netlink socket
3) NETLINK_AUDIT_SOCKET__NLMSG_WRITE - set an audit configuration parameter
4) NETLINK_AUDIT_SOCKET__NLMSG_READ - read an audit configuration parameter
5) NETLINK_AUDIT_SOCKET__NLMSG_RELAY - send an audit event through the kernel to
audit daemon

A program that simply logs audit events (nscd, passwd) should have 2 & 5
An entry point daemon (login, cron) should have 1, 2, & 5
Auditctl should have 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, & 6
Auditd should have 1, 2, 3, & 4
