.SH "SYNOPSIS"
.B #include <libaudit.h>
.sp
int audit_request_signal_info(int fd);

.SH "DESCRIPTION"

audit_request_signal_info requests that the kernel send information about the sender of a signal to the audit daemon. The sinal info structure is as follows:

.nf
struct audit_sig_info {
        uid_t           uid;
        pid_t           pid;
        char            ctx[0];
};
.fi

This function is likely to be used only by audit daemons and shouldn't be called by any other kind of program.

.SH "RETURN VALUE"

The return value is <= 0 on error, otherwise it is the netlink sequence id number. This function can have any error that sendto would encounter.

.SH "SEE ALSO"
