The Cisco IOS XE router must audit the execution of privileged functions.
Misuse of privileged functions, either intentionally or unintentionally by authorized users, or by unauthorized external entities that have compromised information system accounts, is a serious and ongoing concern and can have significant adverse impacts on organizations. Auditing the use of privileged functions is one way to detect such misuse and identify the risk from insider threats and the advanced persistent threat.
Enter the following commands to enable auditing: logging userinfo archive log config logging enable logging size 1000 notify syslog contenttype plaintext hidekeys
Verify that the Cisco IOS XE router automatically audits execution of privileged functions. The configuration should look similar to the example below: logging userinfo archive log config logging enable logging size 1000 notify syslog contenttype plaintext hidekeys If privileged functions are not audited, this is a finding.
