Tracking file access in Solaris

Hi,

I started at a new gig who is running Solaris and they need to know of a way to track when files have been accessed, changed or deleted and by whom.  Is there any package that can do that?

Thanks!

AIDE should be able to do what you want.

Here is a link to get it going on Solaris 10

Hi Papertrip,

This will answer the question of who modified and/or deleted a file?   From the writeup I can see where it can detect a file that's been altered, but no mention of which account did it.  Am I missing something?

I'm not sure if there is anything out there that will do exactly that.  AIDE is meant to be a tool to use in conjunction with the usual stuff, it's basically open source Tripwire.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You can use Solaris Basic Security Mode (BSM), which is a native Solaris package for auditing all types of things.

man bsm

Subversion/cvs might be what you are looking for.  Access to the file can only be obtained through them and they will maintain versioning as well as records of access.

depending on the file and what their purpose is.

is this a document management type of mechanism you are looking for?

Interesting I never heard of that.  Will it report which user modified a specific file?

Wow.  BSM looks like RACF on an IBM mainframe in terms of functionality.  This will definitely do what they wanted it to.

Thanks much!
