Basic Audit Regression Test Suite for the Linux Kernel

https://github.com/linux-audit/audit-testsuite

Build Status

The audit-testsuite project provides a simple, self-contained regression test suite for the Linux Kernel's audit subsystem.

Online Resources

The test suite's source repository currently lives on GitHub at the following URL:

Installation

The audit-testsuite requires the audit userspace, a C compiler (gcc), Perl 5, and some additional Perl modules (see the list below). Some tests also require 32-bit glibc packages.

To install all these dependencies on your distribution on x86_64 architecture please follow the instructions below.

RHEL / Centos

# yum install audit \
              gcc \
              glibc.i686 \
              glibc-devel.i686 \
              libgcc.i686 \
              perl \
              perl-Test \
              perl-Test-Harness \
              perl-File-Which \
              perl-Time-HiRes \
              nmap-ncat

Fedora

# dnf install audit \
              gcc \
              glibc.i686 \
              glibc-devel.i686 \
              perl \
              perl-Test \
              perl-Test-Harness \
              perl-File-Which \
              perl-Time-HiRes \
              nmap-ncat

Debian Based Systems

On Debian you need to install a number of dependencies as well as perform some additional system configuration. Install the dependencies using the commands below:

# apt-get install auditd \
                  build-essential \
                  libc6-i386 \
                  libc6-dev-i386 \
                  perl-modules \
                  netcat

After the dependencies are installed you should ensure that BASH is installed on the system and that /bin/sh points to BASH, not Dash:

# apt-get install bash
# dpkg-reconfigure dash

Execution

Please notice that tests are changing kernel audit rules and hence it might be a good idea to back them up prior testing and restore them afterwards. The tests need to be executed as root.

All of the commands listed below should be executed from the audit-testsuite top level directory.

Build the Tests

# make

List the Tests

# make list

Execute the Entire Test Suite

# make test

Execute a Subset of the Test Suite

# TESTS="test1 test2 ..." make -e test

Enable Additional Debugging Output

# ATS_DEBUG=1 make test
