A simple cookbook to install auditd and provided rulesets. Rulesets included in the OS auditd/audit package as examples are based on 4 established standards:

The OS package provides the client side tools for working with the linux kernel audit framework.


Linux : any distribution in theory, but only Ubuntu and RHEL 6 have been tested.


  • node['auditd']['ruleset'] - ruleset to use, either "default" (the default if unset) or one of the provided examples
    • NOTE: When using this recipe on RHEL systems, you're restricted to the "default" or "cis" rulesets, as RHEL uses version-specific paths for the .rules which we can't programatically determine at this time.
  • node['auditd']['backlog'] - backlog size, default is 320 should be larger for busy systems


If you're using one of the default rulesets set the correct attribute based on the ruleset desired, one of:

  • "capp" : Controlled Access Protection Profile
  • "lspp" : Labeled Security Protection Profile
  • "nispom" : National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM)
  • "stig" : Security Technical Implementation Guides
  • "cis" : Center for Internet Security auditd recommendations

And include recipe[auditd::rules] in your run list. You can also set the attribute node['auditd']['ruleset'] to the name of a custom rule template to be used instead of one of the default rules.

If you are using the recipe from a wrapper cookbook, include the default recipe recipe[auditd] to setup the service and use the auditd_ruleset resource to place your custom rule template.


Ideally the auditd_ruleset resource could make use of a data bag search to build the data driven ruleset

Make builtins an array attribute to allow user updates without cookbook release.
