IOS XE router must generate audit records containing the full-text recording of privileged commands.
Reconstruction of harmful events or forensic analysis is not possible if audit records do not contain enough information. Organizations consider limiting the additional audit information to only that information explicitly needed for specific audit requirements. The additional information required is dependent on the type of information (i.e., sensitivity of the data and the environment within which it resides). At a minimum, the organization must audit full-text recording of privileged commands. The organization must maintain audit trails in sufficient detail to reconstruct events to determine the cause and impact of compromise.
Enter the following commands to enable auditing: logging userinfo archive log config logging enable logging size 1000 notify syslog contenttype plaintext hidekeys
Verify that logging is properly configured on the Cisco
IOS XE router. The configuration will look similar to the example below:
logging size 1000
notify syslog contenttype plaintext
If logging is not configured to log the full-text recording of privileged commands, this is a finding.
