Audit System: uid < 19 and gid < 20


hi there, when I read a security guide for Linux.

In auditing section, the audit data file should be readable only by users that has uid < 19 and gid < 20.

so I am wondering: Do uids (<19) and gids (<20) have any special meaning?

Thanks for your help.

I'm not sure if they have a special meaning. Usually UID and GID < 100 are reserved for core and system services and UID > 500 are reserved for regular user accounts.
