(edit)
By setting the "fail_action" option to "halt", the audisp-remote plug-in can be configured to shut down the system when an error is reported. However, consequent to an error in the SELinux rules, when a network connection failed, SELinux incorrectly denied the halt action. With this update, the SELinux rules have been corrected, and audisp-remote is now allowed to shut down the system as expected.
