Java Security question.

This may seems simple but I am unaware of this.
Is there anyway to fetch the date & time of a user ID created on AIX? (actually I need answer for HP-UX,Solaris & Linux as well. But AIX is what I am most interested in.)
I use ls command but it does not show the creation date. It just shows the last modification date. Please let me know.

I think this questions has been answered few times, as far as I can recall, but anyway, this information is not available by default, even when you run "lsuser $USER". See this page for more info on how to turn this feature on. If you are lucky, the file "smit.log" may contain the desired information.
