Discussion

Being able to work on a system through multiple views into the application allows a user to work more efficiently and more accurately. Before environments with windowing capabilities or multiple desktops, a user would log onto the application from different workstations or terminals. With today's workstations, this is no longer necessary and may signal a compromised session or user account. When concurrent logons are made from different workstations to the management interface, a log record needs to be generated. This allows the system administrator to investigate the incident and to be aware of the incident.

Check Content

Review the application server documentation and the system configuration to determine if the application server generates log records showing concurrent logons from different workstations to the management interface. If concurrent logons from different workstations are not logged, this is a finding.
