OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for loginlog (opensolaris section 4)

loginlog(4)				   File Formats 			      loginlog(4)

NAME
       loginlog - log of failed login attempts

DESCRIPTION
       After  five  unsuccessful  login  attempts,  all  the  attempts	are  logged  in  the file
       /var/adm/loginlog. This file contains one record for each failed attempt. Each record con-
       tains the login name, tty specification, and time.

       This is an ASCII file. Each field within each entry is separated from the next by a colon.
       Each entry is separated from the next by a new-line.

       By default, loginlog does not exist, so no logging is done. To  enable  logging,  the  log
       file must be created with read and write permission for owner only. Owner must be root and
       group must be sys.

FILES
       /var/adm/loginlog

       login(1), passwd(1)
