Reviewing the Access and Privileges by Host report

The Access and Privileges by Host report identifies all users with logon access to a host and the commands users can run on the host. To run this report you must have an active policy group; you can only include hosts that are joined to a policy group in the report.

To create the Access & Privileges by Host report

  1. From the mangement console, navigate to Reporting.
  2. From the Reports view, double-click the Access and Privileges by Host report name.

    The report opens a new Access & Privileges by Host tab on the Reporting view.

  3. Browse to select the host for which you want to create the report.
  4. Select the Show detailed report option.
  5. Open the Export drop-down menu and select the format you want to use for the report: PDF or CSV.

    It launches a new browser or application page and displays the report in the selected format.

Note: When generating multiple reports simultaneously or generating a single report that contains a large amount of data, One Identity recommends that you increase the JVM memory. See JVM memory tuning suggestions for details.

Event logs and keystroke logging

Privilege Manager enables event logging. Each time a command is run, the policy server accepts or rejects the requested command according to the rules in the policy and creates an event (audit) log. The policy server records the keystroke input and terminal output for each accepted command, creating comprehensive "keystroke logs" files. With these logs, you can perform forensic-level auditing of any command executed.

Event logs are always captured and stored on the policy servers in /var/opt/quest/qpm4u/pmevents.db; keystroke logs are stored at var/opt/quest/qpm4u/iolog.

Note: You can use the iolog_dir and iolog_file policy options to reconfigure the iolog file location. For more information about the policy options, refer to the Privilege ManagerAdministration Guide.

You can view event logs or replay keystroke logs from the Policy tab of the mangement console if you are logged in either as the supervisor or an Active Directory account with rights to audit the policy file; that is, an account in the Audit Sudo Policy or Audit PM Policy role.

BEST PRACTICE: As a best practice, One Identity recommends that you set up a separate policy server for archiving and viewing logs.

Enabing keystroke logging

To enable keystroke logging for sudo policy

  1. From the mangement console, navigate to Policy | Sudo Policy Editor.

  2. Open the Open menu and select Current version to open the latest saved version of the policy file that is currently in use by the mangement console. See Opening a policy file for details.

  3. Add the following line to the policy file to enable keystroke logs:

    Defaults log_output
  4. Add an entry for a local user in the form who where = (as_whom) what. For example:

    localuser     ALL=(ALL)     ALL

    where localuser is a local user account name.


    • This allows localuser to perform any command on any machine as any user.
    • To set up a local user, see Adding a local user.
  5. Save and close the policy.

To enable keystroke logging for pmpolicy

  1. Using the GUI editor, open the role's General setting page.
  2. Select the Enable keystroke logging option.

Recording keystrokes

Privilege Manager only generates a keystroke log when the policy server accepts a command and keystroke logging is enabled in the policy. When the policy server accepts a command, Privilege Manager records the keystrokes and stores them on the policy server. If the policy server rejects a command, Privilege Manager does not record keystrokes nor does it generate a log.

To generate a keystroke log

  1. Log into the host on which the Privilege Manager software is installed as a non-privileged user specified in the policy.

  2. At the command prompt, enter:

    sudo bash

    Enter your password.

    When you enter sudo bash, it opens a new shell.

  3. At the new shell's command prompt, enter the following lines:

    echo "This is fun."
    echo "My keystrokes are being recorded"

    Note: For a fun demonstration, type echo"This is a mistake" and then backspace over a mistake and enter fixed. When you replay the keystroke log you will see that it records every keystroke!

  4. Enter exit to close the bash shell.

    It records every keystroke after you enter sudo until you enter exit.

You are now ready to replay your keystroke log from the mangement console.
