Fix Recommendation

Edit /etc/syslog.conf and add local log destinations for auth.* or both auth.notice and auth.info.

Check Contents

Check /etc/syslog.conf and verify the auth facility is logging both the notice and info level messages by using one of the procedures below.

# grep "auth.notice" /etc/syslog.conf
# grep "auth.info" /etc/syslog.conf
OR
# grep 'auth.*' /etc/syslog.conf

If auth.* is not found, and either auth.notice or auth.info is not found, this is a finding.
