AU_CLASS(3)            FreeBSD Library Functions Manual            AU_CLASS(3)

NAME
     getauclassent, getauclassent_r, getauclassnam, getauclassnam_r,
     setauclass, endauclass -- Look up information from the audit_class data-
     base

LIBRARY
     Basic Security Module User Library (libbsm, -lbsm)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <libbsm.h>

     struct au_class_ent *
     getauclassent(void);

     struct au_class_ent *
     getauclassent_r(struct au_class_ent *e);

     struct au_class_ent *
     getauclassnam(const char *name);

     struct au_class_ent *
     getauclassnam_r(struct au_class_ent *e, const char *name);

     void
     setauclass(void);

     void
     endauclass(void);

DESCRIPTION
     These interfaces may be used to look up information from the
     audit_class(5) database, which describes audit event classes.  Audit
     event classes are described by struct au_class_ent.

     getauclassent() will return the next class found in the audit_class(5)
     database, or the first if the function has not yet been called.  NULL
     will be returned if no further records are available.

     getauclassnam() looks up a class by name.  NULL will be returned if no
     matching class can be found.

     setauclass() resets the iterator through the audit_class(5) database,
     causing the next call to getauclassent() to start again from the begin-
     ning of the file.

     endauclass() closes the audit_class(5) database, if open.

AUTHORS
     This software was created by Robert Watson, Wayne Salamon, and Suresh
     Krishnaswamy for McAfee Research, the security research division of
     McAfee, Inc., under contract to Apple Computer, Inc.

     The Basic Security Module (BSM) interface to audit records and audit
     event stream format were defined by Sun Microsystems.

HISTORY
     The OpenBSM implementation was created by McAfee Research, the security
     division of McAfee Inc., under contract to Apple Computer, Inc., in 2004.
     It was subsequently adopted by the TrustedBSD Project as the foundation
     for the OpenBSM distribution.

BUGS
     These routines cannot currently distinguish between an entry not being
     found and an error accessing the database.  The implementation should be
     changed to return an error via errno when NULL is returned.
