NAME

     setauid - set audit session ID

SYNOPSIS

     #include <bsm/audit.h>

     int
     setauid(au_id_t *auid);

DESCRIPTION

     The setauid() system call sets the active audit session ID for the
     current process from the au_id_t pointed to by auid.

     This system call requires an appropriate privilege to complete.

RETURN VALUES

     Upon successful completion, the value 0 is returned; otherwise the
     value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the
     error.

ERRORS

     The setauid() function will fail if:

     [EFAULT]           A failure occurred while data transferred to the
                        kernel failed.

     [EPERM]            The process does not have sufficient permission to
                        complete the operation.
