Well, herein lies the rub...the audit rules you have in place are doing
their job.
:)

The escd is creating device files as it does its thing...do you trust
it? Assuming so, maybe there is a way to filter those out.

Can you send a couple of the results of this command? This will tell you
the top (recent) auditing processes:
% sudo aureport -ts recent -i -x --summary

Also a couple of of these results (since you said there were a lot of
escd process events). Change "recent" to "today" or a specific start
time (see ausearch man page):
% sudo ausearch -ts recent -i -c escd

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

These are the top results for the ausearch command given above:

930  /usr/lib64/esc-1.1.0/escd
82  /usr/libexec/abrt-hook-ccpp
44  /usr/sbin/sshd
43  /usr/sbin/crond
41  /usr/sbin/usermod
34  /sbin/unix_chkpwd
31  /usr/bin/sudo
24  /bin/ls
22  /usr/sbin/abrtd (deleted)
21  /usr/sbin/httpd
17  /usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server
15  /bin/su
14  /usr/libexec/gnome-screensaver-dialog
14  /usr/sbin/cupsd

OK. It appears that the RH smart card reader software is doing this, which is odd, considering I'm not using a smart card right now. I'll disable it (for now) and see what happens. But I'm going to want it working eventually.
