Add or update the following file system rule to "/etc/audit/audit.rules":

-w /etc/group -p wa -k identity

The audit daemon must be restarted for the changes to take effect. To restart the audit daemon, run the following command:

# sudo systemctl restart auditd.service

Check Contents

Verify the Ubuntu operating system generates audit records for all account creations, modifications, disabling, and termination events that affect "/etc/group".

Check the auditing rules in "/etc/audit/audit.rules" with the following command:

# sudo grep /etc/group /etc/audit/audit.rules

-w /etc/group -p wa -k audit_rules_usergroup_modification

If the command does not return a line, or the line is commented out, this is a finding.
