Manage auditing and security log

Class: COMPLIANCEFamily: windows




This policy setting determines which users can change the auditing options for files and directories and clear the Security log. When configuring a user right in the SCM enter a comma delimited list of accounts. Accounts can be either local or located in Active Directory, they can be groups, users, or computers. Vulnerability: The ability to manage the Security event log is a powerful user right and it should be closely guarded. Anyone with this user right can clear the Security log to erase important evidence of unauthorized activity. Counter Measure: Ensure that only the local Administrators group has the Manage auditing and security log user right. Potential Impact: None. This is the default configuration. Fix: (1) GPO: Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment\Manage auditing and security log (2) REG: NO INFO
