NAME

audit_request_signal_info - Request signal info for the audit system  

SYNOPSIS

#include <libaudit.h>

int audit_request_signal_info(int fd);

 

DESCRIPTION

audit_request_signal_info requests that the kernel send information about the sender of a signal to the audit daemon. The sinal info structure is as follows:

struct audit_sig_info {
        uid_t           uid;
        pid_t           pid;
        char            ctx[0];
};

This function is likely to be used only by audit daemons and shouldn't be called by any other kind of program.

 

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.
