JUNI-ND-001440 - The Juniper router must be configured to send log data to a syslog server for the purpose of forwarding alerts to the administrators and the ISSO.


Once an attacker establishes initial access to a system, the attacker often attempts to create a persistent method of reestablishing access. One way to accomplish this is for the attacker to simply create a new account. Notification of account creation is one method for mitigating this risk. A comprehensive account management process will ensure an audit trail which documents the creation of accounts and notifies administrators and Information System Security Officers (ISSOs). Such a process greatly reduces the risk that accounts will be surreptitiously created and provides logging that can be used for forensic purposes.


Configure the router to send log data to a syslog server as shown in the example below.

set syslog host x.x.x.x any info
