GETAUDITFLAGS(3BSM) Security and Auditing Library Functions GETAUDITFLAGS(3BSM)


NAME


getauditflags, getauditflagsbin, getauditflagschar - convert audit flag
specifications

SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag... ] file... -lbsm -lsocket -lnsl [ library... ]
#include <sys/param.h>
#include <bsm/libbsm.h>

int getauditflagsbin(char *auditstring, au_mask_t *masks);


int getauditflagschar(char *auditstring, au_mask_t *masks, int verbose);


DESCRIPTION


The getauditflagsbin() function converts the character representation of
audit values pointed to by auditstring into au_mask_t fields pointed to
by masks. These fields indicate which events are to be audited when they
succeed and which are to be audited when they fail.


The getauditflagschar() function converts the au_mask_t fields pointed to
by masks into a string pointed to by auditstring. If verbose is 0, the
short (2-character) flag names are used. If verbose is non-zero, the long
flag names are used. The auditstring argument should be large enough to
contain the ASCII representation of the events.


The auditstring argument contains a series of event names, each one
identifying a single audit class, separated by commas. The au_mask_t
fields pointed to by masks correspond to binary values defined in
<bsm/audit.h>, which is read by <bsm/libbsm.h>.

RETURN VALUES


Upon successful completion, getauditflagsbin() and getauditflagschar()
return 0. Otherwise they return -1.
