Felix will present some results of his research on Linux Audit Framework (auditd), which provides a powerful framework for monitoring system and user activity.

The Linux Audit System (auditd) – curse and blessing

Few logging systems on Linux offer monitoring as comprehensive as auditd. By specifying rules, individual system calls (syscalls) can be monitored in a fine-grained way depending on their arguments and calling programs/users. Apart from a technical basic understanding this kind of the monitoring is based on the covering of all relevant system calls. Since in the Linux operating system under circumstances the same action can be achieved with different system calls, already a single unmonitored system call can be sufficient for an attacker to manipulate a system undetected and to collect information. How quickly such a “small” mistake can happen can be seen in the current Auditd vulnerability with CVE XXXX, where the developers themselves overlooked a system call. In his presentation, Felix will show the strengths and weaknesses of the Linux audit system, including the discovery process and the background of the auditd vulnerabilities.
