Your post is confusing. If you aren't a Linux administrator (and how could you be when you say you don't know much about Linux?), why did they ask you to implement something from a systems/network security standpoint?? What, exactly do you mean by "Implement access violations attempts"??? You WANT to create some access violations? Or DETECT them?

And as you've been told since 2015, if you're using OEL you need to be PAYING FOR IT, and as such, can contact Oracle support, so why haven't you?? And as you've been asked before, read the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature...we'll be happy to help you, but based on what you posted, you're asking us to do research and give you a solution for a problem at the job you're getting paid to do. What have YOU done/tried/researched so far??? Tried looking in the system logs? These things are covered in the Oracle knowledgebase.

I definitely suggest that you should discuss this with your auditor, with your boss, and with the IT Department at your company.

Start with your boss, and let him/her identify and send you to other parties as (s)he sees fit. That's part of your boss's job.

(No offense ...) If you really don't understand the requirement and/or how to do it, then how can you possibly produce a meaningful "audit" result?

Of far more concern to the company would be that you might think that you succeeded, but be wrong. They think that your audit result is sound, but, "oops!," it isn't. (Hint: auditors don't like "oops!")

I expect that any or all of these people would be very happy to give you a "nudge" in the right direction, so that you can fulfill the task and so that everyone else concerned can have proper confidence in it. And, you'll learn something new.

I'm a big fan of the "five-minute rule."

No one knows everything. (Even if they think they do. ) And, no one is seriously expected to. If you're not sure how to do something, especially something as important as this, let your boss be the first one to know. There is no shame nor risk in it.
