Distributed Audit Service (XDAS)

The purpose of security audit services is to provide support for the principle of accountability and detection of security-policy violations in distributed systems. The XDAS specification defines a set of generic events of relevance at a global distributed system level, and a common portable audit record format to facilitate the merging and analysis of audit information from multiple components at the distributed system level. Four groups of APIs are provided to accomplish this. Source XDAS Open Group Preliminary Specification page.
