TrustedBSD Audit: BSM Security Event Logging for FreeBSD

Security Audit is a security feature provided by most commercial operating systems to track security-related events in security-critical environments, but currently not available in most open source systems.

This talk describes the FreeBSD Audit implementation, based on the Darwin audit implementation, which provides the industry-standard BSM token stream format and application programming interface. We discuss an audit event stream engine introduced into the FreeBSD kernel, modifications throughout the kernel to capture security event information, the BSM audit format and APIs, and the pre-selection/post-selection "interest" mechanism that allows the administrator to select what types of events should be logged.

This talk is appropriate for system developers and system administrators interested in security event logging.
