Fix Recommendation

Configure the operating system to generate audit records when successful/unsuccessful attempts to use the "truncate" syscall occur.

Add or update the following rules in "/etc/audit/rules.d/audit.rules":

-a always,exit -F arch=b32 -S truncate -F exit=-EPERM -F auid>=1000 -F auid!=4294967295 -k access

-a always,exit -F arch=b32 -S truncate -F exit=-EACCES -F auid>=1000 -F auid!=4294967295 -k access

-a always,exit -F arch=b64 -S truncate -F exit=-EPERM -F auid>=1000 -F auid!=4294967295 -k access

-a always,exit -F arch=b64 -S truncate -F exit=-EACCES -F auid>=1000 -F auid!=4294967295 -k access

The audit daemon must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

Check Contents

Verify the operating system generates audit records when successful/unsuccessful attempts to use the "truncate" syscall occur.

Check the file system rules in "/etc/audit/audit.rules" with the following commands:

# grep -iw truncate /etc/audit/audit.rules

-a always,exit -F arch=b32 -S truncate -F exit=-EPERM -F auid>=1000 -F auid!=4294967295 -k access

-a always,exit -F arch=b32 -S truncate -F exit=-EACCES -F auid>=1000 -F auid!=4294967295 -k access

-a always,exit -F arch=b64 -S truncate -F exit=-EPERM -F auid>=1000 -F auid!=4294967295 -k access

-a always,exit -F arch=b64 -S truncate -F exit=-EACCES -F auid>=1000 -F auid!=4294967295 -k access

If both the "b32" and "b64" audit rules are not defined for the "truncate" syscall, this is a finding.

If the output does not produce rules containing "-F exit=-EPERM", this is a finding.

If the output does not produce rules containing "-F exit=-EACCES", this is a finding.
