The Cisco switch must be configured to generate audit records when successful/unsuccessful attempts to log on with access privileges occur.
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 information system (e.g., module or policy filter).
Configure the Cisco switch to log all logon attempts as shown in the example below: SW1(config)#login on-failure log SW1(config)#login on-success log SW1(config)#end
Review the Cisco switch configuration to verify that it is compliant with this requirement. The configuration example below will log all logon attempts. login on-failure log login on-success log If the Cisco switch is not configured to generate audit records when successful/unsuccessful attempts to logon, this is a finding.
