Fix Recommendation

The following command specifies the severity levels of event messages to send to a Syslog server:
logging syslog [severity-level]

The following command specifies a Syslog server to which to send event messages:
logging host ipaddr [ipaddr...][port protocol-port]
"ipaddr" is the IP address of the Syslog server. IP addresses can be entered for up to 10 remote logging Syslog servers.
"protocolport" is the port number to which to send messages. Only one protocol port can be specified with the command. All servers must use the same port to listen for syslog messages.

Since the Audit log is separate from the Event log, it must have its own target to write messages to:
logging auditlog host [ipaddr | hostname][facility facility-name]
"ipaddr | hostname" is the IP address or hostname of the server.
"facility-name" is the name of a log facility.

Check Contents

The A10 Networks ADC records in the audit log when an account is created (enabled). This appears as the command that created the account and contains the keyword "admin". These messages must be forwarded to the ISSO and administrators. This is met by sending audit log messages to the Syslog servers.

Review the device configuration.

The following command shows the portion of the device configuration that includes the word "host":
show run | inc host

If the output does not display the "logging host" and "logging auditlog host" commands (no log targets are configured), this is a finding.

The following command shows the logging policy:
show log policy

If Syslog logging is disabled, this is a finding.
