CISC-RT-000210 - The Cisco router must be configured to produce audit records containing information to establish where the events occurred.

Information

Without establishing where events occurred, it is impossible to establish, correlate, and investigate the events leading up to an outage or attack.

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 router components, modules, device identifiers, node names, and functionality.

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

Solution

Configure the router to log events containing information to establish where the events occurred as shown in the example below.

R5(config)#ip access-list extended INGRESS_FILTER
...
...
...
R5(config-ext-nacl)#deny ip any any log-input
