NAME
       aureport - a tool that produces summary reports of audit daemon logs

SYNOPSIS
       aureport [options]

DESCRIPTION
       aureport is a tool that produces summary reports of the audit system
       logs. The aureport utility can also take input from stdin as long as the
       input is the raw log data. The reports have a column label at the top to
       help with interpretation of the various fields. Except for the main
       summary report, all reports have the audit event number. You can
       subsequently lookup the full event with ausearch -a event number. You may
       need to specify start & stop times if you get multiple hits. The reports
       produced by aureport can be used as building blocks for more complicated
       analysis.


OPTIONS
       -au, --auth
              Report about authentication attempts

       -a, --avc
              Report about avc messages

       --comm Report about commands run

       -c, --config
              Report about config changes

       -cr, --crypto
              Report about crypto events

       -e, --event
              Report about events

       -f, --file
              Report about files

       --failed
              Only select failed events for processing in the reports. The
              default is both success and failed events.

       -h, --host
              Report about hosts

       --help Print brief command summary

       -i, --interpret
              Interpret  numeric  entities into text. For example, uid is
              converted to account name. The conversion is done using the
              current resources  of  the machine where the search is being run.
              If you have renamed the accounts, or don't have the  same
              accounts  on your machine, you could get misleading results.

       -if, --input file | directory
              Use the given file or directory instead of the logs. This is to
              aid analysis where the logs have been moved to another machine or
              only part of a log was saved.

       --input-logs
              Use the log file location from auditd.conf as input for analysis.
              This is needed if you are using aureport from a cron job.

       --integrity
              Report about integrity events

       -k, --key
              Report about audit rule keys

       -l, --login
              Report about logins

       -m, --mods
              Report about account modifications

       -ma, --mac
              Report about Mandatory Access Control (MAC) events

       -n, --anomaly
              Report about anomaly events. These events include NIC going into
              promiscuous mode and programs segfaulting.

       --node node-name
              Only select events originating from node name string for
              processing in the reports. The default is to include all nodes.
              Multiple nodes are allowed.

       -nc, --no-config
              Do not include the CONFIG_CHANGE event. This is particularly
              useful for the key report because audit rules have key labels in
              many cases. Using this option gets rid of these false positives.

       -p, --pid
              Report about processes

       -r, --response
              Report about responses to anomaly events

       -s, --syscall
              Report about syscalls

       --success
              Only select successful events for processing in the reports. The
              default is both success and failed events.

       --summary
              Run the summary report that gives a total of the elements of the
              main report. Not all reports have a summary.

       -t, --log
              This option will output a report of the start and end times for
              each log.

       --tty  Report about tty keystrokes

       -te, --end [end-date] [end-time]
              Search for events with time stamps equal to or before the given
              end time. The format of end time depends on your locale. If the
              date is omitted, today is assumed. If the time is omitted, now is
              assumed. Use 24 hour clock time rather than AM or PM to specify
              time. An example date using the en_US.utf8 locale is 09/03/2009.
              An example of time is 18:00:00. The date format accepted is
              influenced by the LC_TIME environmental variable.

              You may also use the word: now, recent, today, yesterday,
              this-week, week-ago, this-month, this-year. Today means starting
              now. Recent is 10 minutes ago. Yesterday is 1 second after
              midnight the previous day. This-week means starting 1 second after
              midnight on day 0 of the week determined by your locale (see
              localtime). Week-ago means 1 second after midnight exactly 7 days
              ago. This-month means 1 second after midnight on day 1 of the
              month. This-year means the 1 second after midnight on the first
              day of the first month.

       -tm, --terminal
              Report about terminals

       -ts, --start [start-date] [start-time]
              Search for events with time stamps equal to or after the given end
              time. The format of end time depends on your locale. If the date
              is omitted, today is assumed. If the time is omitted, midnight is
              assumed. Use 24 hour clock time rather than AM or PM to specify
              time. An example date using the en_US.utf8 locale is 09/03/2009.
              An example of time is 18:00:00. The date format accepted is
              influenced by the LC_TIME environmental variable.

              You may also use the word: now, recent, today, yesterday,
              this-week, week-ago, this-month, this-year. Today means starting
              at 1 second after midnight. Recent is 10 minutes ago. Yesterday is
              1 second after midnight the previous day. This-week means starting
              1 second after midnight on day 0 of the week determined by your
              locale (see localtime). Week-ago means starting 1 second after
              midnight exactly 7 days ago. This-month means 1 second after
              midnight on day 1 of the month. This-year means the 1 second after
              midnight on the first day of the first month.
