Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 428277
Audit subsystem SIGUSR2 support
Last modified: 2009-01-20 15:10:35 EST
Description of problem:
The kernel audit subsytem needs to store information about sender of SIGUSR2 to
the audit daemon. This is already done for SIGUSR1 and SIGTERM. So there should
just be a simple modification to support sigusr2 like the others.
This is needed because the audit daemon must record certain information about
any attempt to change the running configuration of the audit daemon.
This should be tested by "service auditd resume" followed by "ausearch --start
recent -m DAEMON_RESUME". This will need user space support to work correctly.
