The Cisco IOS XE router must off load audit records via syslog so the audit records can be backed up every seven days.
Protection of log data includes assuring log data is not accidentally lost or deleted. Regularly backing up audit records to a different system or onto separate media than the system being audited helps to assure, in the event of a catastrophic system failure, the audit records will be retained. This helps to ensure a compromise of the information system being audited does not also result in a compromise of the audit records.
Configure the Cisco IOS XE router to use syslog. The configuration should look similar to the example below: logging host 184.108.40.206
Verify that the Cisco IOS XE router is configured to use syslog. The configuration should look similar to the example below: logging host 220.127.116.11 If syslog is not configured, this is a finding.
