OL08-00-030130 - OL 8 must generate audit records for all account creation events that affect '/etc/shadow' - /etc/shadow.

Information

Without generating audit records that are specific to the security and mission needs of the organization, it would be difficult to establish, correlate, and investigate the events relating to an incident or identify those responsible for one.

Audit records can be generated from various components within the information system (e.g., module or policy filter).

Solution

Configure OL 8 to generate audit records for all account creations events that affect '/etc/shadow'.

Add or update the following file system rule to '/etc/audit/rules.d/audit.rules':

-w /etc/shadow -p wa -k identity

The audit daemon must be restarted for the changes to take effect. To restart the audit daemon, run the following command:

$ sudo service auditd restart
