Most daemons seem to use their own logfile and therefore can use their
own logrotate configuration script in /etc/logrotate.d.
But /var/log/secure is not handled by a specific daemon and thus is
taken care of in the standard logrotate configuration. I don't know
what effects it would give if you try to override it in a more
specific configuration script. Might even not be possible. Or perhaps
it is, hehe.
Anyway I think that when you depend on /var/log/secure (or any generic
logfile), you can't do anything, except informing the users to change
To that extent you can either make it copy-truncate or add a
postrotate script to restart/reload fail2ban.
