BOF audit proposal to Linux Symposium is accepted



I have submitted a proposal for a BOF to describe the audit subsystem to 
the Linux Symposium in 
Ottawa which was accepted and I am about to submit (already late) the 
following abstract:

The purpose of this BOF is to discuss the current implementation of the 
audit subsystem. Based on the audit infrastructure developed by Rick 
Faith, 
the current implementation added several functions  to make the audit 
compliant with the Common Criteria Controlled Access 
Protection Profile (CAPP).  For example, file system auditing 
was added, the audit context structure was expanded, id inheritance 
was fixed, etc... In addition, user-space programs and libraries have 
been re-written completing the CAPP requirements as well as providing
ease of use to the administrator. A general description of the audit 
subsystem will start this BOF, followed by how to configure the daemon,
set the filtering rules and use the search utilities. Time permitting, 
we'll 
share some experience and discuss future development.

If anyone would like to cooperate in conducting this meeting and/or see 
changes/additions to this abstract, please let me know as soon as you can. 


The abstract was due today.
