NAME

       audisp-prelude.conf - the audisp-prelude configuration file

DESCRIPTION

       audisp-prelude.conf  is the file that controls the configuration of the
       audit based intrusion detection system. There are 2  general  kinds  of
       configuration  option  types, enablers and actions. The enablers simply
       have yes/no as the only valid choices.

       The action options currently allow ignore, and idmef  as  its  choices.
       The  ignore  option  means  that the IDS still detects events, but only
       logs the detection in response. The idmef option  means  that  the  IDS
       will send an IDMEF alert to the prelude manager upon detection.

       The configuration options that are available are as follows:

       profile
              This is a one word character string that is used to identify the
              profile name in the prelude  reporting  tools.  The  default  is
              auditd.

       detect_avc
              This  an  enabler that determines if the IDS should be examining
              SE Linux AVC events. The default is yes.

       avc_action
              This is an action that determines what response should be  taken
              whenever a SE Linux AVC is detected. The default is idmef.

       detect_login
