Type of audit report

We export the audit snapshot to save, but they are txt and csv files, that someone could accidentally or not modified them.

To avoid be possible change them, the audit report could generate the files in PDF format, that will not be changed and could be easier to understand.

    The ILMT's audit snapshot has digital signature with checksum, so any modification of it's content will result in failing validation of the checksum. At this link (next to signature.rsa file - last in thh table) the process of verification is described:

    Audit snapshot can not be changed to pdf format as it's content is meant to be used by auditors during software license review process, which requires analysis of the data there using dedicated tools/scripts.

    Also, any ILMT report can be exported to pdf format, so such exported reports can augment the audit snapshot if this is needed by any reason.

    Please let me know if this answer is satosfactory and if yes, we'll close this idea.

    Thanks you!
