pam USER_ROLE_CHANGE audit events missing some info
Last modified: 2015-09-27 22:07:27 EDT
Description of problem:
The USER_ROLE_CHANGE audit events are missing hostname, addr, and terminal fields. Looking at the code I see this:
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
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.
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
The audit records provided by the pam_selinux and pam_tally2 modules have been improved to include tty and remote hostname information in each recorded event.
