I am writing a converter which takes Linux Audit logs as input. I tried to find the most recent dictionary file where all the valid names of the fields are defined.

I've found such a file[1] but the main website[2] says:


The specifications have moved to github. The following will be left in place for a while and then removed.

I cannot find these information on the GitHub Wiki[3] of the Linux Audit project.

Is the file[1] still the most recent and valid source of information?


  1. https://people.redhat.com/sgrubb/audit/field-dictionary.txt
  2. https://people.redhat.com/sgrubb/audit
  3. https://github.com/linux-audit/audit-documentation/wiki
