Is audit an officially supported package though? If not, I'm going to
have to research
how RHEL can meet all the PCI-DSS requirements...
There was a webcast yesterday on RHEL and PCI compliance, but I got called away
just as they were answering one of my questions near the end of the webcast.
I'll have to research more on the audit.log also. I'd prefer to have
a built-in solution that
uses syslogd, vs something hard coded to a specific log.
Yes, audit is official. There is an entire ecosystem built around audit,
including things like intrusion detection. Start with the link I
provided, do a bit of reading, then follow up with your question on the
Linux Audit mailing list (this email list is not the one you want). You
