In this paper we examine the transformation mapping mechanisms required in synchronizing virtual machine (VM) log audit data for the system administrator environment. We explain the formal constraints that are required by the transformation mapping process between the source and target log schemas for these VMs. We discuss the practical considerations of using these formalisms in establishing the suitable data quality rules that provides for security within these abstract domains.
