Re: Unix/Linux security events

Disclaimer: I used to work for IBM.

IBM has a lot of documentation about security and security events.

Their product Compliance Insight Manager has a manual which tells you
what events you can log:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v2r1/topic/com.ibm.itcim.doc/tcim85_install100.html#wq229

Make sure you understand what you are doing. Don't enable everything,
or your system will go beserk. Rotate the logs frequently, so your
disks won't fill up. It's a good idea to use a seperate partition for
your logs.

Also different UNIX's have different settings and different quirks, so
read about the UNIX variant you are using.

HTH,

Marc

Hi List,
We have deployed IBM Tivoli agents to Unix and Linux servers in order to collect security events and dump to a syslog 
server. But which security events to log? Is there a baseline document that can provide guidelines? or a document 
that describes events generated by these devices?

thanks in advance.
