config file for go-audit
# Configure socket buffers, leave unset to use the system defaults
# Values will be doubled by the kernel
# It is recommended you do not set any of these values unless you really need to
# Default is net.core.rmem_default (/proc/sys/net/core/rmem_default)
# Maximum max is net.core.rmem_max (/proc/sys/net/core/rmem_max)
receive: 16384
# Configure message sequence tracking
# Track messages and identify if we missed any, default true
enabled: true
# Log out of orderness, these messages typically signify an overloading system, default false
log_out_of_order: false
# Maximum out of orderness before a missed sequence is presumed dropped, default 500
max_out_of_order: 500
# Configure where to output audit events
# Only 1 output can be active at a given time
# Writes to stdout
# All program status logging will be moved to stderr
enabled: false
# Total number of attempts to write a line before considering giving up
# If a write fails go-audit will sleep for 1 second before retrying
# Default is 3
attempts: 3
# Writes logs to syslog
enabled: false

# Configure the type of socket this should be, default is unixgram
# This maps to `network` in golangs net.Dial:
network: unixgram
# Set the remote address to connect to, this can be a path or an ip address
# This maps to `address` in golangs net.Dial:
address: /dev/log
# Sets the facility and severity for all events. See the table below for help
# The default is 132 which maps to local0 | warn
priority: 129 # local0 | emerg
# Typically the name of the program generating the message. The PID is of the process is appended for you: [1233]
# Default value is "go-audit"
tag: "audit-thing"

# The actual file will be created if it is missing but make sure the parent directory exists

mode: 0600
# User and group that should own the log file
user: root

# Configure logging, only stdout and stderr are used.
# Gives you a bit of control over log line prefixes. Default is 0 - nothing.
# To get the `filename:lineno` you would set this to 16
# Ldate = 1 // the date in the local time zone: 2009/01/23
# Ltime = 2 // the time in the local time zone: 01:23:23
# Lmicroseconds = 4 // microsecond resolution: 01:23:23.123123. assumes Ltime.
# Llongfile = 8 // full file name and line number: /a/b/c/d.go:23
# Lshortfile = 16 // final file name element and line number: d.go:23. overrides Llongfile
# LUTC = 32 // if Ldate or Ltime is set, use UTC rather than the local time zone

# Enable kernel auditing (required if not done via the "audit" kernel boot parameter)
# You can also use this to lock the rules. Locking requires a reboot to modify the ruleset.

# If kaudit filtering isn't powerful enough you can use the following filter mechanism
# Each filter consists of exactly 3 parts
#- syscall: 49 # The syscall id of the message group (a single log line from go-audit), to test against the regex
# message_type: 1306 # The message type identifier containing the data to test against the regex
# regex: saddr=(10..|0A..) # The regex to test against the message specific message types data
