gdsoperations/auditd — version 0.4.0 Nov 20th 2015

Security Notice

Versions prior to 0.3.1 contained a serious bug which could cause audit rules to be silently ignored. Please see this advisory.


This module installs and configures auditd. It also provides a defined type(auditd::rule) to set up auditd rules.

Example usage

Include with default parameters and add a rule:

include auditd
auditd::rule { 'use-of-auditctl':
  content => '-w /sbin/auditctl -p x -k audittools',
  order   => '66',
