The SLES for vRealize must off-load audit records onto a different system or media from the system being audited.


Finding ID Version Rule ID IA Controls Severity

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.

Check Text ( C-43736r671248_chk )
Check the syslog configuration file for remote syslog servers:

# cat /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf | grep logserver

If no line is returned, or "logserver" is commented out, this is a finding.
Fix Text (F-43695r671249_fix)
Edit the syslog configuration file and add an appropriate remote syslog server:

In the /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf file, the remote logging entries must be uncommented and the IP address must be modified to point to the remote syslog server:

# Enable this and adopt IP to send log messages to a log server.
destination logserver { udp("x.x.x.x" port(514)); };
log { source(src); destination(logserver); };

Note: Replace x.x.x.x with the appropriate IP address.
