Discussion

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).

Fix Text

Configure the switch to log session start and ending per admin session as shown in the example below: SW1(config)# logging level authpriv 6

Check Content

Verify that the switch is configured to generate log records showing starting and ending time for administrator access as shown in the example below: logging level authpri 6 If the switch is not configured to generate log records showing starting and ending time for administrator access, this is a finding.
