The user authentication logs in BSM shows wrong subject

I have logged in as an active directory domain user. When i lock the mac and unlock with Touch ID the following event is logged.

<subject audit-uid="-1" uid="root" gid="wheel" ruid="root" rgid="wheel" pid="318" sid="100000" tid="0 0.0.0.0" />
<text>Touch ID authentication</text>
<return errval="success" retval="0" />
<identity signer-type="1" signing-id="com.apple.biometrickitd" signing-id-truncated="no" team-id="" team-id-truncated="no" cdhash="0x8b061a4cd6a37b9228d5b894cc269aaa32ef8051" />
</record>

This logs the subject as root rather than as the domain user through which i have logged in through. This is not the case when i use password log in.

You haven’t asked a question here, which leads me to believe that your goal was to report a bug. If so, please do that using Feedback Assistant, and then post your bug number here, just for the record.

  • Sorry for the missing that. I wanted to ask if there is any way we could get the correct subject. Is it an issue or is it by design?

I don’t know. Sorry.

Did you file a bug? I may be able to dig some info out of that.
