AUDIT_REQUEST_SIGNAL_INFO(3) Linux Audit API AUDIT_REQUEST_SIGNAL_INFO(3)

audit_request_signal_info - Request signal info for the audit system

#include <libaudit.h>

int audit_request_signal_info(int fd);

audit_request_signal_info requests that the kernel send information about the sender of a signal to the audit daemon. The signal info structure is as follows:

struct audit_sig_info {

uid_t uid;
pid_t pid;
char ctx[0]; };

This function is likely to be used only by audit daemons and shouldn't be called by any other kind of program.

The return value is <= 0 on error, otherwise it is the netlink sequence id number. This function can have any error that sendto would encounter.

audit_open(3), audit_get_reply(3).
