Under some circumstances, it may be useful to monitor who/what is reading privilege/permission/role information. Therefore, it must be possible to configure auditing to do this. Database Management Systems (DBMSs) typically make such information available through views or functions.

This requirement addresses explicit requests for privilege/permission/role membership information. It does not refer to the implicit retrieval of privileges/permissions/role memberships that the DBMS continually performs to determine if any and every action on the database is permitted.

NOTE: Nessus has provided the target output to assist in reviewing the benchmark to ensure target compliance.


If currently required, configure the MySQL Database Server to produce audit records when audit when privileges/permissions are retrieved.

See the supplemental file 'MySQL80Audit.sql'.
