The Central Log Server must be configured to generate reports that support after-the-fact investigations of security incidents.
If the report generation capability does not support after-the-fact investigations, it is difficult to establish, correlate, and investigate the events leading up to an outage or attack or identify those responses for one. This capability is also required to comply with applicable Federal laws and DoD policies.
The report generation capability must support after-the-fact investigations of security incidents either natively or through the use of third-party tools.
This requirement is specific to applications with report generation capabilities; however, applications need to support on-demand reporting requirements.
