Fix Recommendation

Add the following to "/etc/audit/audit.rules":

# audit_network_modifications
-a always,exit -F arch=b32 -S sethostname -S setdomainname -k audit_network_modifications
-w /etc/issue -p wa -k audit_network_modifications
-w /etc/issue.net -p wa -k audit_network_modifications
-w /etc/hosts -p wa -k audit_network_modifications
-w /etc/sysconfig/network -p wa -k audit_network_modifications

If the system is 64-bit, then also add the following:

# audit_network_modifications
-a always,exit -F arch=b32 -S sethostname -S setdomainname -k audit_network_modifications

Check Contents

If you are running x86_64 architecture, determine the values for sethostname:
$ uname -m; ausyscall i386 sethostname; ausyscall x86_64 sethostname

If the values returned are not identical verify that the system is configured to monitor network configuration changes for the i386 and x86_64 architectures:

$ sudo egrep -w '(sethostname|setdomainname|/etc/issue|/etc/issue.net|/etc/hosts|/etc/sysconfig/network)' /etc/audit/audit.rules

-a always,exit -F arch=b32 -S sethostname -S setdomainname -k audit_network_modifications
-w /etc/issue -p wa -k audit_network_modifications
-w /etc/issue.net -p wa -k audit_network_modifications
-w /etc/hosts -p wa -k audit_network_modifications
-w /etc/sysconfig/network -p wa -k audit_network_modifications

-a always,exit -F arch=b64 -S sethostname -S setdomainname -k audit_network_modifications
-w /etc/issue -p wa -k audit_network_modifications
-w /etc/issue.net -p wa -k audit_network_modifications
-w /etc/hosts -p wa -k audit_network_modifications
-w /etc/sysconfig/network -p wa -k audit_network_modifications

If the system is 64-bit and does not return a rule for both "b32" and "b64" architectures, this is a finding.

If the system is not configured to audit changes of the network configuration, this is a finding.

If you are running x86_64 architecture, determine the values for sethostname:

If the values returned are not identical verify that the system is configured to monitor network configuration changes for the i386 and x86_64 architectures:

$ sudo egrep -w '(sethostname|setdomainname|/etc/issue|/etc/issue.net|/etc/hosts|/etc/sysconfig/network)' /etc/audit/audit.rules

-w /etc/issue.net -p wa -k audit_network_modifications
-w /etc/hosts -p wa -k audit_network_modifications
-w /etc/sysconfig/network -p wa -k audit_network_modifications

If the system is 64-bit and does not return a rule for both "b32" and "b64" architectures, this is a finding.

If the system is not configured to audit changes of the network configuration, this is a finding.
