Discussion

Changing privileges of a subject/object may cause a subject/object to gain or lose capabilities. When successful/unsuccessful changes are made, the event needs to be logged. By logging the event, the modification or attempted modification can be investigated to determine if it was performed inadvertently or maliciously.

Fix Text

Configure the application server to generate log records when privileges are successfully or unsuccessfully modified.

Check Content
