AMLS-NM-000130 - The Arista Multilayer Switch must automatically audit account modification.


Since the accounts in the network device are privileged or system-level accounts, account management is vital to the security of the network device. Account management by a designated authority ensures access to the network device is being controlled in a secure manner by granting access to only authorized personnel with the appropriate and necessary privileges. Auditing account modification along with an automatic notification to appropriate individuals will provide the necessary reconciliation that account management procedures are being followed. If modifications to management accounts are not audited, reconciliation of account management procedures cannot be tracked.


Enable logging on the switch with sufficient detail to fulfill the specifications set forth in the VulDiscussion.

To configure logging to a remote syslog server at the informational level, enter:

switch(config)#logging host [ip address]
switch(config)#logging trap informational

Then configure the following AAA

aaa accounting commands all default start-stop logging [group radius]
