Fix Recommendation

Configure the application to create an audit record for both successful and unsuccessful attempts to access security levels.

Check Contents

Review the application documentation and interview the application administrator. Identify where the application logs are stored.

Identify application functionality that provides privilege escalation or access to additional security levels within the application.

This can be performing a function that escalates the privileges of the user, or accessing a protected area of the application that requires additional authentication in order to access.

Authenticate to the application as a regular user. Using application functionality, attempt to access a different security level or domain within the application.

Perform two attempts, one successfully and one unsuccessfully.

Review the log data and ensure both the successful and unsuccessful access attempts are logged.

If the application does not generate an audit record when successful and unsuccessful attempts to access security levels occur, this is a finding.
