Discussion

Without auditing the enforcement of access restrictions against changes to the application configuration, it will be difficult to identify attempted attacks, and an audit trail will not be available for forensic investigation for after-the-fact actions. Enforcement actions are the methods or mechanisms used to prevent unauthorized changes to configuration settings. Enforcement action methods may be as simple as denying access to a file based on the application of file permissions (access restriction). Audit items may consist of lists of actions blocked by access restrictions or changes identified after the fact.

Examine the configuration. Verify the Central Log Server audits the enforcement actions used to prevent access to modules or functions that can change the account access levels. If the Central Log Server is not configured to audit the enforcement actions used to prevent access to modules or functions that can change the account access levels, this is a finding.
