auditd on OS X

Auditd gets a limited description in the Snow Leopard Security Config doc. I'm posting a quick summary here, and will update it as I learn more.

auditd rules are kept in /etc/security.  The audit_control rules apply to all users and audit_user allows for per-user rules.

Audit logs are stored in binary format in /var/audit/logstarttime.logfinishtime and can be read with:
praudit /var/audit/20111018000205.20111018000916
