CASA-ND-000280 - The Cisco ASA must be configured to produce audit records containing information to establish where the events occurred - logging enable

Information

In order to compile an accurate risk assessment and provide forensic analysis, it is essential for security personnel to know where events occurred, such as device hardware components, device software modules, session identifiers, filenames, host names, and functionality.

Associating information about where the event occurred within the network device provides a means of investigating an attack; recognizing resource utilization or capacity thresholds; or identifying an improperly configured device.

Solution

Configure the Cisco ASA as shown in the example below.

ASA(config)# logging enable
ASA(config)# logging buffered informational
ASA(config)# end
