3.0211 - The system must label all off-loaded audit logs before sending them to the central log server.

Information

Information stored in one location is vulnerable to accidental or incidental deletion or alteration.

Off-loading is a common process in information systems with limited audit storage capacity.

When audit logs are not labeled before they are sent to a central log server, the audit data will not be able to be analyzed and tied back to the correct system.

Satisfies: SRG-OS-000342-GPOS-00133, SRG-OS-000479-GPOS-00224

Solution

Edit the /etc/audisp/audispd.conf file and add or update the 'name_format' option:

name_format = hostname

The audit daemon must be restarted for changes to take effect:

# service auditd restart
