The Cisco IOS XE router must generate audit records showing starting and ending time for administrator access to the system.
Without generating audit records that are specific to the security and mission needs of the organization, it would be difficult to establish, correlate, and investigate the events relating to an incident or identify those responsible for one. Audit records can be generated from various components within the network device (e.g., module or policy filter).
Configure the Cisco IOS XE router for auditing. The configuration should look similar to the example below: logging userinfo archive log config logging enable logging size 1000 notify syslog contenttype plaintext hidekeys
Review the Cisco IOS XE router configuration to determine if it automatically audits start and end times for administrator access. 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 administrator access is not automatically audited, this is a finding.
