Depends on the access methods, e.g. telnet, SSH, FTP, NFS, etc.

Each access method logs different information, and different levels of detail.

Which access method(s) do you want to analyze?

As PsiCop says, it depends on the method used to log in.

You can list all successful logins with the 'last' command.

To log failed logins (via telnet/ssh), edit /etc/default/logins and set

SYSLOG_FAILED_LOGINS=0

Then do:

touch /var/adm/loginlog
chown root:sys /var/adm/loginlog
chmod 600 /var/adm/loginlog
