The CA API Gateway must generate audit log events for a locally developed list of auditable events.
Auditing and logging are key components of any security architecture. Logging the actions of specific events provides a means to investigate an attack; to recognize resource utilization or capacity thresholds; or to identify an improperly configured network device. If auditing is not comprehensive, it will not be useful for intrusion monitoring, security investigations, and forensic analysis.
The Gateway relies on the standard Linux audit subsystem. The subsystem is configurable by modifying /etc/audit/audit.rules. Custom rules can be added to this file. See the Linux man-page for audit.rules(7) for detail about specifying custom rules.
Examine "/etc/audit/audit.rules" to confirm any custom developed rules are contained within the file. If the "/etc/audit/audit.rules" does not contain the custom developed rules within the file, this is a finding.
