Discussion

Accessing a subject's privileges can be used to elevate a lower-privileged subject's privileges temporarily in order to cause harm to the application server or to gain privileges to operate temporarily for a designed purpose. When these actions take place, the event needs to be logged. Application servers either provide a local user store, or they integrate with enterprise user stores like LDAP. When the application server provides the user store and enforces authentication, the application server must generate a log record when modification of privileges is successfully or unsuccessfully performed.

Fix Text

Configure the application server to generate log records when privileges are successfully/unsuccessfully accessed.

Check Content

Review the application server documentation and the system configuration to determine if the application server generates log records when successful/unsuccessful attempts are made to access privileges. If log records are not generated, this is a finding.
