NAME

       aureport - a tool that produces summary reports of audit daemon logs

SYNOPSIS

       aureport [options]

DESCRIPTION

       aureport  is  a  tool that produces summary reports of the audit system logs. The aureport
       utility can also take input from stdin as long as the input  is  the  raw  log  data.  The
       reports  have a column label at the top to help with interpretation of the various fields.
       Except for the main summary report, all reports have  the  audit  event  number.  You  can
       subsequently  lookup the full event with ausearch -a event number. You may need to specify
       start & stop times if you get multiple hits. The reports produced by aureport can be  used
       as building blocks for more complicated analysis.

OPTIONS

       -au, --auth
              Report about authentication attempts

       -a, --avc
              Report about avc messages

       --comm Report about commands run

       -c, --config
              Report about config changes

       -cr, --crypto
              Report about crypto events

       -e, --event
              Report about events

       --escape option
              This  option  determines  if  the  output  is escaped to make the content safer for
              certain uses. The options are raw , tty  ,  shell  ,  and  shell_quote.  Each  mode
              includes  the characters of the preceding mode and escapes more characters. That is
              to say shell includes all characters escaped by tty  and  adds  more.  tty  is  the
              default.

       -f, --file
              Report about files and af_unix sockets

       --failed
              Only  select  failed  events  for  processing  in  the reports. The default is both
              success and failed events.

       -h, --host
              Report about hosts

       --help Print brief command summary

       -i, --interpret
              Interpret  numeric  entities into text. For example, uid is  converted  to  account
              name. The conversion is done using the current resources  of  the machine where the
              search is being run. If you have renamed the accounts,  or  don't  have  the   same
              accounts  on your machine, you could get misleading results.

       -if, --input file | directory
              Use  the given file or directory instead of the logs. This is to aid analysis where
              the logs have been moved to another machine or only part of a log was saved.

       --input-logs
              Use the log file location from auditd.conf as input for analysis. This is needed if
              you are using aureport from a cron job.

       --integrity
              Report about integrity events

       -k, --key
              Report about audit rule keys

       -l, --login
              Report about logins

       -m, --mods
              Report about account modifications

       -ma, --mac
              Report about Mandatory Access Control (MAC) events

       -n, --anomaly
              Report  about  anomaly events. These events include NIC going into promiscuous mode
              and programs segfaulting.

       --node node-name
              Only select events originating from node name string for processing in the reports.
              The default is to include all nodes. Multiple nodes are allowed.

       -nc, --no-config
              Do  not  include  the  CONFIG_CHANGE event. This is particularly useful for the key
              report because audit rules have key labels in many cases. Using  this  option  gets
              rid of these false positives.

       -p, --pid
              Report about processes

       -r, --response
              Report about responses to anomaly events

       -s, --syscall
              Report about syscalls

       --success
              Only  select  successful  events for processing in the reports. The default is both
              success and failed events.

       --summary
              Run the summary report that gives a total of the elements of the main  report.  Not
              all reports have a summary.

       -t, --log
              This option will output a report of the start and end times for each log.

       --tty  Report about tty keystrokes

       -te, --end [end-date] [end-time]
              Search  for  events  with  time  stamps  equal to or before the given end time. The
              format of end time depends on your  locale.  If  the  date  is  omitted,  today  is
              assumed. If the time is omitted, now is assumed. Use 24 hour clock time rather than
              AM or PM  to  specify  time.  An  example  date  using  the  en_US.utf8  locale  is
              09/03/2009.  An example of time is 18:00:00. The date format accepted is influenced
              by the LC_TIME environmental variable.

              You may also  use  the  word:  now,  recent,  boot,  today,  yesterday,  this-week,
              week-ago,  this-month, this-year. Now means starting now. Recent is 10 minutes ago.
              Boot means the time of day to the second when the system last booted.  Today  means
              now.  Yesterday  is  1  second  after  midnight  the  previous day. This-week means
              starting 1 second after midnight on day 0 of the week  determined  by  your  locale
              (see  localtime).  Week-ago  means  1  second  after  midnight  exactly 7 days ago.
              This-month means 1 second after midnight on day 1 of the month. This-year means the
              1 second after midnight on the first day of the first month.

       -tm, --terminal
              Report about terminals

       -ts, --start [start-date] [start-time]
              Search for events with time stamps equal to or after the given end time. The format
              of end time depends on your locale. If the date is omitted, today  is  assumed.  If
              the  time is omitted, midnight is assumed. Use 24 hour clock time rather than AM or
              PM to specify time. An example date using the en_US.utf8 locale is  09/03/2009.  An
              example  of time is 18:00:00. The date format accepted is influenced by the LC_TIME
              environmental variable.

              You may also  use  the  word:  now,  recent,  boot,  today,  yesterday,  this-week,
              week-ago,  this-month, this-year. Boot means the time of day to the second when the
              system last booted. Today means starting at 1 second after midnight. Recent  is  10
              minutes ago. Yesterday is 1 second after midnight the previous day. This-week means
              starting 1 second after midnight on day 0 of the week  determined  by  your  locale
              (see  localtime).  Week-ago  means  starting 1 second after midnight exactly 7 days
              ago. This-month means 1 second after midnight on day  1  of  the  month.  This-year
              means the 1 second after midnight on the first day of the first month.

       -u, --user
              Report about users

       -v, --version
              Print the version and exit

       --virt Report about Virtualization events

       -x, --executable
              Report about executables

NOTE

       The boot time option is a convenience function and has limitations. The time it calculates
       is based on time now minus /proc/uptime. If after boot the system clock has been adjusted,
       perhaps  by  ntp,  then  the  calculation  may be wrong. In that case you'll need to fully
       specify the time. You can check the time it would use by running:

       date -d "`cut -f1 -d. /proc/uptime` seconds ago"
