Discussion

Without establishing the source of the event, it is impossible to establish, correlate, and investigate the events leading up to an outage or attack. In addition to logging where events occur within the operating system, the operating system must also generate audit records that identify sources of events. Sources of operating system events include, but are not limited to, processes and services. In order to compile an accurate risk assessment and provide forensic analysis, it is essential for security personnel to know the source of the event.
