Question redirect security related event messages to the system log?


How do I redirect security related event messages to the system log?

Bonus question, how do I make sure my logs stay around for at least 90 days?

If you mean the "authpriv" facility, check where it goes now with 'grep authpriv /etc/syslog.conf', then reroute to "the system log" (as if /var/log/secure isn't a "system log"). Logs are rotated. See /etc/logrotate.d/syslog for configuration ("rotate n" + "daily|weekly|monthly").
