Audit Privileged Access Misuse of privileged functions, either intentionally or unintentionally by authorized users, or by unauthorized external entities that have compromised information system accounts, is a serious and ongoing concern and can have significant adverse impacts on organizations. Auditing the use of privileged functions is one way to detect such misuse, and identify the risk from insider threats and the advanced persistent threat.


Parameter: EXISTS/DOES NOT EXIST


Technical Mechanism: In order to view the currently configured flags for the audit daemon, run the following command: sudo grep ^flags /etc/security/audit_control Privileged access is logged via the 'ad' flag. If 'ad' is not listed in the result of the check, this is a finding.
