Re: auid

Hi Russell,

This discussion is probably best held on the linux-audit mail list since you are
possibly suggesting changing the behavior of the audit system.

Why? The current design is that only entry point programs set the login uid
(auid). It works per the design. I don't really understand what problem you see.

Setting the login uid is supposed to be protected by SE Linux policy so that only
the right apps can do it.

In this whole email, you never specified what problem you see.
