Open Source Basic Security Module (BSM) Audit Implementation
OpenBSM is an open source implementation of Sun’s Basic Security Module BSM Audit API and file format. BSM, the de facto industry standard for Audit, describes a set of system call and library interfaces for managing audit records, as well as a token stream file format that permits extensible and generalized audit trail processing. OpenBSM extends the BSM API and file format in a number of ways to support features present in the Mac OS X and FreeBSD operating systems, such as Mach task interfaces, sendfile, and Linux system calls present in the FreeBSD Linux emulation layer.
