The Cisco switch must be configured to off-load log records onto a different system than the system being audited.
Information stored in one location is vulnerable to accidental or incidental deletion or alteration. Off-loading is a common process in information systems with limited audit storage capacity.
Configure the Cisco switch to send log records to a syslog server as shown in the example below: SW4(config)# logging server 10.1.48.10 6
Review the Cisco switch configuration to verify that it is compliant with this requirement as shown in the example below: logging server 10.1.48.10 6 If the Cisco switch is not configured to off-load log records onto a different system than the system being audited, this is a finding.
