Summary

This article describes differences in the Access Rule modifiers available and how limitations on maximum input/output are handled in different BoKS versions and hotfixes.


Reference Information

The BoKS keystroke logging function includes keystroke logging level 4, which uses locally-defined parameters on the host to determine how keystroke logging operates.

FoxT strongly discourages customers from using keystroke logging level 4. For more information see the articles #14122 “Advisory: Keystroke loglevel 4 delegates control to local administrators” and #14114 "Hotfix: Enhancements to kslog level 4 (HFBM-0230, HFBM-0231, HFBM-0232)".

FoxT has released hotfixes to provide an alternative way to configure keystroke logging parameters so that customers no longer need to use keystroke logging level 4. The Access Route / Rule modifiers available and the way these operate depend on the version of BoKS and what hotfixes are installed.

When you apply a limit on keyboard input and screen output that is logged, the way the limit is calculated is different in different versions / hotfix levels. It can either be a limit set per command, or a total limit for the whole keystroke logged session.

The following table describes what modifiers are available for keystroke logged Access Routes / Rules and how input / output limits are applied depending on BoKS version and hotfixes installed.
