FGFW-ND-000060 - The FortiGate device must log all user activity.


This requirement supports non-repudiation of actions taken by an administrator and is required to maintain the integrity of the configuration management process. All configuration changes to the network device are logged, and administrators authenticate with two-factor authentication before gaining administrative access. Together, these processes will ensure the administrators can be held accountable for the configuration changes they implement.

To meet this requirement, the network device must log administrator access and activity.

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