Discussion

Logging the access to the application server allows the system administrators to monitor user accounts. By logging successful/unsuccessful logons, the system administrator can determine if an account is compromised (e.g., frequent logons) or is in the process of being compromised (e.g., frequent failed logons) and can take actions to thwart the attack. Logging successful logons can also be used to determine accounts that are no longer in use.

Fix Text

Configure the application server to generate log records when successful/unsuccessful logon attempts are made by users.

Check Content

Review product documentation and the system configuration to determine if the application server generates log records on successful and unsuccessful logon attempts by users. If logon attempts do not generate log records, this is a finding.
