Database Management System Auditing

Auditing is optional functionality for the SAP ASE that tracks security-related system activity in an audit trail, which can be used to detect system penetration and system abuse.

By examining the audit trail, the system security officer can inspect patterns of access to objects in databases and monitor the activity of specific users. Audit records can be traced to specific users, enabling the audit system to act as a deterrent to users who are attempting to misuse the system.

A system security officer is the only user who can start and stop auditing, set up auditing options, and process audit data.

See the Security Administration Guide for installation and configuration instructions.
