UNIX sessions recorded by a connector

If you are already auditing session activity on UNIX computers, you might notice a few differences between sessions recorded directly on a Linux or UNIX computer that has an agent installed and the remote shell sessions recorded by the Centrify Connector. For example, if a UNIX session is recorded by the connector, you might notice the following differences:

  • UNIX sessions recorded by the connector do not include standard input (stdin).
  • You cannot specify any agent configuration settings that you control using the centrifyda.conf file, such as password masking.
  • There is no role-based auditing or integration to skip auditing for some activity or to audit only privileged activity.
  • You cannot configure “per command” auditing.
  • You cannot obfuscate any sensitive information that might be captured in a session.
