Overview

This module will install a basic template for auditd rules.

Module Description

This module edits the default /etc/audit/auditd.conf, adds a /etc/audit/rules.d/audit.rules file to the server and restarts auditd.

Setup

If you wish to use your own ruleset, it must be passed to the auditd classes $auditd_rules parameter as an array of rules. This ruleset will over-write the default rules, so must be the full ruleset you intend to implement. E.g.:

class {'auditd':
  auditd_rules => [
    '-a always,exit -F arch=b32 -S adjtimex -S settimeofday -k time-change',
    '-w /etc/passwd -p wa -k identity',
  ],
}

Config values for the auditd.conf file can be passed in as a hash to the $auditd_conf parameter, where the key is the setting name and the value is the value. This will not completely over-write the default ruleset, only add new settings to the default list, or override values for existing settings. The default list can be found in the in-module Hiera data. E.g.

class {'auditd':
  auditd_conf => {
    'log_file' => '/var/log/some-other-auditd.log',
  }
}
