We have enabled  audit on files insode AIX systems and it's working as expected. For example, if you edit and change /etc/myfile.conf with VI, a record is shown on audit logs:

S_ENVIRON_WRITE root     root     Thu Feb 11 10:59:01 2016 OK          vi
         fichero audit object write event detected /etc/myfile.conf

But, the question:
 Is possible to audit, using auditbin,  the diff with original and the changed /etc/myfile.conf file?

If I remember well, auditd on Linux can do this.
