Description Steve Grubb 2011-02-15 09:23:12 EST
Description of problem:
The USER_ROLE_CHANGE audit events are missing hostname, addr, and terminal fields. Looking at the code I see this:

audit_log_user_message(audit_fd, AUDIT_USER_ROLE_CHANGE,
                                   msg, NULL, NULL, NULL, success)

Those NULLs should be filled in with results from pam_get_item().

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in via sshd
2. As root user, ausearch --start today -m USER_ROLE_CHANGE
Comment 6 Tomas Mraz 2011-02-21 05:08:12 EST
There is no reasonable way how to get the remote host name in the separate executables. The faillock will be called by admin in an existing login session so it can be easily traced back. The unix_chkpwd audit was added for the case of screensaver password entry auditing - here this is also running in an existing login session.
