Solaris Trusted Extensions Administrator's Procedures

Trusted Extensions and Auditing

On a system that is configured with Trusted Extensions software, auditing is configured and is administered similarly to auditing on a Solaris system. However, the following are some differences.

  • Trusted Extensions software adds audit classes, audit events, audit tokens, and audit policy options to the system.

  • By default, auditing is enabled in Trusted Extensions software.

  • Solaris per-zone auditing is not supported. In Trusted Extensions, all zones are audited identically.

  • Trusted Extensions provides administrative tools to administer the users' audit characteristics and to edit audit files.

  • Two roles, System Administrator and Security Administrator, are used to configure and administer auditing in Trusted Extensions.

    The security administrator plans what to audit and any site-specific, event-to-class mappings. As in the Solaris OS, the system administrator plans disk space requirements for the audit files, creates an audit administration server, and installs audit configuration files.
