Question:

Is there a way to get the CA Top Secret Audit Tracking File entries exported in a usable format to be used as input for another program?

Answer:

There are 2 options:

  1. Run a TSSUTIL EXTRACT to copy the Audit entries to a dataset, which can be used as input for a user/OEM program. Please refer to the CA Top Secret Report and Tracking Guide for more details about the TSSUTIL EXTRACT and record layout of the output dataset
  2. When Audit entries are written to the Audit Tracking File, they are also written the SMF datasets as SMF 80 records. The SMF 80 records can be read in as input for the user/OEM written program. For the layout of the SMF type 80 records that TSS generates, see the Top Secret Report & Tracking Guide (section titled 'SMF Type 80 Record Layout') and/or member #SMF80 and #FLOG in the CA Top Secret Optional Materials Library.
