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.
