in a nutshell, the security model is

the superuser (aka root: uid 0) is can do anything.
command audit trail (logging) is not provided.
the holes have been in the implementation of that model.
the source shows the implementation. which has been of greatly
varying quality regarding security. ;(
I'm not sure that's entirely corrent - superuser, for instance, can not
(with the exception of holes in various subsystems...) lower the
securelevel. I'm not sure what you mean by command audit trail, but
process accounting is available, and is pretty darned close to logging
commands. Stuff like syscall level accounting such as available in sun's
bsm stuff is, unfortunately, not available presently.
