NAME
       loginlog	- log of failed	login attempts

DESCRIPTION
       After  five unsuccessful	login attempts,	all the	attempts are logged in
       the file	/var/adm/loginlog. This	file  contains	one  record  for  each
       failed attempt. Each record contains the	login name, tty	specification,
       and time.

       This is an ASCII	file. Each field within	each entry is  separated  from
       the  next  by  a	colon. Each entry is separated from the	next by	a new-
       line.

       By default, loginlog does not exist, so no logging is done.  To	enable
       logging,	 the  log  file	must be	created	with read and write permission
       for owner only. Owner must be root and group must be sys.

FILES
       /var/adm/loginlog
