FAQ: What does report-authentication-sinks mean?

Detail

The output of asinfo -v get-config includes some items that aren’t configuration parameters, eg:

root@700e4b17ce0e:/# asinfo -v get-config -l | grep report
report-authentication-sinks=0
report-data-op-sinks=2
report-sys-admin-sinks=1
report-user-admin-sinks=3
report-violation-sinks=1

What do these mean and how are they set?

Answer

Each of these corresponds to a configuration parameter that can be set in either or both of the log or syslog subcontexts of the security context. The configuration parameters have the same name without the -sinks suffix, eg: report-authentication. Because the parameter can be enabled twice, reporting true or false is inadequate. asinfo reports the sum of the values 1 (enabled in the log stanza) and 2 (enabled in the syslog stanza). If it’s not enabled in either, the value is 0, and if in both, 3.

Notes

This is documented in the info commands reference under get-config but you have to click through “Show Output” to see it.
