Re: Question - Rule Syntax



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

I'm hoping to be told otherwise, but the cleanest and most maintainable way that I've seen to do this is to make two rules.

First Rule: Ignore user 505
Second Rule: Audit everyone

Auditd should stop at the first rule matched. It does add more rules but seems to be the most stable across auditd versions.

Also, that auid!=42... should probably be near the top of your rules since it will get hit the most and I'm assuming that you don't ever want to audit
anonymous accesses to most items.
