  • The Name should be an identificative and unique rule name. That field will be mandatory.
  • The Description should be a brief description of the rule.
  • The Type allows you to select the rule will be a keyboard or a screen rule. That field will be mandatory.
  • The Content should be what the rule will detect. For instance,  a Linux command like sudo or rm *-r. That field will be mandatory.

3. Then you need to click on the "Apply changes" button to save the new PAM rule.
