Not sure if you noticed, but the audit system ships with a PCI set of rules.
# rpm -ql audit | grep pci
/usr/share/doc/audit/rules/30-pci-dss-v31.rules

The above is best done by TTY auditing.

No. And you would want to add -F auid >= 1000  -F auid != -1 if you were keeping it.

Its not too noisy. Check the rules for this in the pci file. It picks up everything.

pam probably covers this.

Put a watch on passwd & group and shadow-utils does the rest.

Shadow utils covers this.

This will probably make you very unhappy when you do yum update. But you can add those rules.
