audit_setloginuid






audit_setloginuid − Set a program’s loginuid value

#include<libaudit.h>

int audit_setloginuid(uid_t uid);




This function sets the task attribute loginuid with the
value of uid. The loginuid value may only be set by programs
with the CAP_AUDIT_CONTROL capability. This normally means
the root account.

The loginuid value is part of the task structure and is
inheritted by child processes. It is used to track what
account a user gained system access with. All system entry
point programs should set this value right before changing
to the uid of the user granted access so that audit events
are properly attributed to the that user.





     This function returns 0 on success and non‐zero
otherwise.
