NAME
       audit_open - Open a audit netlink socket connection

SYNOPSIS
       #include <libaudit.h>

       int audit_open (void);

DESCRIPTION
       audit_open  creates  a  NETLINK_AUDIT socket for communication with the kernel part of the
       Linux Audit Subsystem. The audit system uses the ACK feature of netlink. This  means  that
       every message to the kernel will return a netlink status packet even if the operation suc-
       ceeds.

RETURN VALUE
       Returns -1 if an error occurs; otherwise, the return value is a descriptor referencing the
       socket.

ERRORS
       The  audit_open()  function may fail and set errno for any of the errors specified for the
       socket(2) and fcntl(2) routines.

SEE ALSO
       netlink(7).
