AIX7-00-002005 - AIX must produce audit records containing information to establish the outcome of the events.


Without information about the outcome of events, security personnel cannot make an accurate assessment as to whether an attack was successful or if changes were made to the security state of the system.

Event outcomes can include indicators of event success or failure and event-specific results (e.g., the security state of the information system after the event occurred). As such, they also provide a means to measure the impact of an event and help authorized personnel to determine the appropriate response.

NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.


Reset the audit system with the following command:
# /usr/sbin/audit shutdown

Start the audit system with the following command:
# /usr/sbin/audit start
