Navigate to and open:


Add the following lines:

-a always,exit -F arch=b64 -S chmod,fchmod,chown,fchown,fchownat,fchmodat -F auid>=1000 -F auid!=4294967295 -F key=perm_mod
-a always,exit -F arch=b64 -S chmod,fchmod,chown,fchown,lchown,setxattr,lsetxattr,fsetxattr,removexattr,lremovexattr,fremovexattr,fchownat,fchmodat -F key=perm_mod
-a always,exit -F arch=b32 -S chmod,fchmod,fchown,chown,fchownat,fchmodat -F auid>=1000 -F auid!=4294967295 -F key=perm_mod
-a always,exit -F arch=b32 -S chmod,lchown,fchmod,fchown,chown,setxattr,lsetxattr,fsetxattr,removexattr,lremovexattr,fremovexattr,fchownat,fchmodat -F key=perm_mod

At the command line, run the following command to load the new audit rules:

# /sbin/augenrules --load

Note: A new 'audit.STIG.rules' file is provided for placement in '/etc/audit/rules.d' that contains all rules needed for auditd.

Note: An older 'audit.STIG.rules' may exist if the file exists and references older 'GEN' SRG IDs. This file can be removed and replaced as necessary with an updated one.
