NAME¶pam_tty_audit - Enable or disable TTY auditing for specified users
pam_tty_audit.so [disable=patterns] [enable=patterns]
DESCRIPTION¶The pam_tty_audit PAM module is used to enable or disable TTY auditing. By default, the kernel does not audit input on any TTY.
MODULE TYPES PROVIDED¶Only the session type is supported.
NOTES¶When TTY auditing is enabled, it is inherited by all processes started by that user. In particular, daemons restarted by an user will still have TTY auditing enabled, and audit TTY input even by other users unless auditing for these users is explicitly disabled. Therefore, it is recommended to use disable=* as the first option for most daemons using PAM.
To view the data that was logged by the kernel to audit use the command aureport --tty.
EXAMPLES¶Audit all administrative actions.
session required pam_tty_audit.so disable=* enable=root
SEE ALSO¶aureport(8), pam.conf(5), pam.d(5), pam(8)
