Discussion

Failed attempts to change the permissions, privileges, and roles granted to users and roles must be tracked. Without an audit trail, unauthorized attempts to elevate or restrict individuals' and groups' privileges could go undetected. In an SQL environment, adding permissions is typically done via the GRANT command, or, in the negative, the REVOKE command. To aid in diagnosis, it is necessary to keep track of failed attempts in addition to the successful ones.

Fix Text

Execute the following SQL as enterprisedb: ALTER SYSTEM SET edb_audit_statement = 'all'; SELECT pg_reload_conf(); or Update the system documentation to note the organizationally approved setting and corresponding justification of the setting for this requirement.

Check Content

Execute the following SQL as enterprisedb: SHOW edb_audit_statement; If the result is not "all" or if the current setting for this requirement has not been noted and approved by the organization in the system documentation, this is a finding.
