SYNOPSIS

#include <libaudit.h>

int audit_add_rule_data (int fd, struct audit_rule_data *rule, int flags, int action);

 

DESCRIPTION

audit_add_rule adds an audit rule to one of several kernel event filters. The filter is specified by the flags argument. Possible values for flags are:

AUDIT_FILTER_USER - Apply rule to userspace generated messages.
AUDIT_FILTER_TASK - Apply rule at task creation (not syscall).
AUDIT_FILTER_ENTRY - Apply rule at syscall entry.
AUDIT_FILTER_WATCH - Apply rule to file system watches.
AUDIT_FILTER_EXIT - Apply rule at syscall exit.
AUDIT_FILTER_TYPE - Apply rule at audit_log_start.

The rule's action has two possible values:

AUDIT_NEVER - Do not build context if rule matches.
AUDIT_ALWAYS - Generate audit record if rule matches.

 

RETURN VALUE

The return value is <= 0 on error, otherwise it is the netlink sequence id number. This function can have any error that sendto would encounter.
