Security Alarm and Audit ACEs?

» close window

The Question is:

I need some help understanding security auditing.  I see from a Show Audit that
 alarms and audits are enabled for ACL.  No other specifics/keywords are shown
 for this line, unlike other entries.
What is that capturing for me, and how can I use Ana/Audit to display any
 activity it caught?
Yes, I have read the DCL command references, and understand basically what ACLs
 and ACEs are doing out there.  What I don't understand is the object it
 assumes it is working with or how to access those details of the journal.

The Answer is :

  If you have the ACL events and audits enabled, then alarm and
  audit ACEs found within an ACL will be processed.
  Please review the OpenVMS system security manual for assistance
  with this and related topics, as the security documentation has
  extensive and detailed documentation specific to auditing and
  alarms and ACL processing.
