And where does Unix System Services come into this as your last sentence indicates?
I suspect this is a reference to "real" unix instead of the mainframe system services. . .
If my memory is still with me, i recall HP-UX (Hewlett-Packer Unix) logged login attempts/failures and placed a bit of tcp/ip info in the logged entry. Our systems also ran several "packet sniffers" to look for people tryhing to "sneak in". Due to the nature of the systems, we checked these logs rather regularly.
Would this be an accurate statement:
The CA Top Secret application and maintained syslog file are the automated processes to capture events.
I'd vote that this is not an accurate statement - largely because the question is quite confusing. As far as i know TSS is NOT an automated process to "capture events" - it is to restrict/grant access to "things".
I've used console log (also called the system log many places) but i'm not familiar with the term "maintained syslog file".
Maybe we'll get some clarification. . .
