Audit trails may be used as either a support for regular system operations or a kind of insurance policy or as both of these.
An analysis of the audit trails may be able to verify that the system operated normally (i.e., that an error may have resulted from operator error, as opposed to a system-originated error).
Audit trails may be reviewed periodically, as needed (often triggered by occurrence of a security event), automatically in real-time, or in some combination of these.

 Audit Trail
The audit trail concept is a very important one in trying to trace the history of a dataset and can be especially useful when one is faced with an unknown dataset.
Such a family tree is passed down from dataset to dataset, generation to generation, by extracting it from component datasets, joining it together somehow, and putting the result into a new dataset.
Therefore, the df audit trail is made up of nodes, one per ancestor dataset, which are composed of four long integers: a site ID, a task ID, a date stamp, and a pointer to another audit node.

 Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) or Voter Verified Paper Ballot (VVPB) is a method of guarding against fraud and malfunction in cases of electronic voting, by providing a means by which a manual vote count can be conducted if an audit of the electronic system is necessary.
Voter Verified Audit Trail (VVAT) is a more general term, that doesn't prescribe paper as the medium in which the audit record is kept.
Groups such as the Verified Voting Foundation support VVPAT in the short term as paper seems to be the only medium that addresses all these issues, but they see requiring paper in the long term as not being technology neutral and not adequately allowing for innovation in VVAT technology.

 SAS Data Files : Audit Trail
The audit trail maintains a historical record of the data that enables you to trace a piece of data from the moment it enters the data file to the time it leaves.

The audit trail is not recommended for SAS data files that are copied, moved, sorted in place, replaced, or transferred to another operating system because those operations do not preserve the audit trail.

 Explanation of Voter-Verified Ballot Systems
It is imperative that the compromise bill refer to a "physical audit capacity'' or even more specifically a "voter verified independent physical audit capacity'' (or audit trail) in order to prevent self-auditing systems from continuing to be accepted and used for elections in the United States.
The voter-verified physical ballots must be those which are used and preserved as the permanent audit trail for the election.
It is also, in principle, impossible for a computational device to provide full fail-safe internal verification, hence any ballot audit produced from self-stored data could reflect errors or manipulation that occurred between the time the voter cast their ballot and the time the ballot was recorded.

 Wired News: Paper Trail Urged as E-Voting Fix
The voter-verifiable paper audit trail, or VVPAT, is a printout of the machine's electronic ballot that voters can examine after they make their selections on the machine.
But questions about the paper trails remain, in part because the question of how states implement them is as important as whether they implement them at all.
Therefore paper trails are meaningless if officials don't conduct post-election audits to compare at least 1 percent of paper votes against their electronic counterparts.
