CCCS AU-12 CCCS_AU-12 CCCS AU-12 Audit and Accountability Audit Generation n/a (A) The information system provides audit record generation capability for the auditable events defined in AU-2 a. of all information system and network components where audit capability is deployed/available. (B) The information system allows organization-defined personnel or roles to select which auditable events are to be audited by specific components of the information system. (C) The information system generates audit records for the events defined in AU-2 d. with the content defined in AU-3. link 7
CCCS AU-5 CCCS_AU-5 CCCS AU-5 Audit and Accountability Response to Audit Processing Failures n/a (A) The information system alerts organization-defined personnel or roles in the event of an audit processing failure; and (B) The information system overwrites the oldest audit records. link 4
CMMC_L3 AU.2.041 CMMC_L3_AU.2.041 CMMC L3 AU.2.041 Audit and Accountability Ensure that the actions of individual system users can be uniquely traced to those users so they can be held accountable for their actions. Shared Microsoft and the customer share responsibilities for implementing this requirement. This requirement ensures that the contents of the audit record include the information needed to link the audit event to the actions of an individual to the extent feasible. Organizations consider logging for traceability including results from monitoring of account usage, remote access, wireless connectivity, mobile device connection, communications at system boundaries, configuration settings, physical access, nonlocal maintenance, use of maintenance tools, temperature and humidity, equipment delivery and removal, system component inventory, use of mobile code, and use of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). link 15
CMMC_L3 AU.2.042 CMMC_L3_AU.2.042 CMMC L3 AU.2.042 Audit and Accountability Create and retain system audit logs and records to the extent needed to enable the monitoring, analysis, investigation, and reporting of unlawful or unauthorized system activity. Shared Microsoft and the customer share responsibilities for implementing this requirement. An event is any observable occurrence in a system, which includes unlawful or unauthorized system activity. Organizations identify event types for which a logging functionality is needed as those events which are significant and relevant to the security of systems and the environments in which those systems operate to meet specific and ongoing auditing needs. Event types can include password changes, failed logons or failed accesses related to systems, administrative privilege usage, or third-party credential usage. In determining event types that require logging, organizations consider the monitoring and auditing appropriate for each of the CUI security requirements. Monitoring and auditing requirements can be balanced with other system needs. For example, organizations may determine that systems must have the capability to log every file access both successful and unsuccessful, but not activate that capability except for specific circumstances due to the potential burden on system performance. Audit records can be generated at various levels of abstraction, including at the packet level as information traverses the network. Selecting the appropriate level of abstraction is a critical aspect of an audit logging capability and can facilitate the identification of root causes to problems. Organizations consider in the definition of event types, the logging necessary to cover related events such as the steps in distributed, transaction-based processes (e.g., processes that are distributed across multiple organizations) and actions that occur in service-oriented or cloudbased architectures. Audit record content that may be necessary to satisfy this requirement includes time stamps, source and destination addresses, user or process identifiers, event descriptions, success or fail indications, filenames involved, and access control or flow control rules invoked. Event outcomes can include indicators of event success or failure and event-specific results (e.g., the security state of the system after the event occurred). Detailed information that organizations may consider in audit records includes full text recording of privileged commands or the individual identities of group account users. Organizations consider limiting the additional audit log information to only that information explicitly needed for specific audit requirements. This facilitates the use of audit trails and audit logs by not including information that could potentially be misleading or could make it more difficult to locate information of interest. Audit logs are reviewed and analyzed as often as needed to provide important information to organizations to facilitate risk-based decision making. link 15
CMMC_L3 AU.3.046 CMMC_L3_AU.3.046 CMMC L3 AU.3.046 Audit and Accountability Alert in the event of an audit logging process failure. Shared Microsoft and the customer share responsibilities for implementing this requirement. Audit logging process failures include software and hardware errors, failures in the audit record capturing mechanisms, and audit record storage capacity being reached or exceeded. This requirement applies to each audit record data storage repository (i.e., distinct system component where audit records are stored), the total audit record storage capacity of organizations (i.e., all audit record data storage repositories combined), or both. link 7
CMMC_L3 AU.3.048 CMMC_L3_AU.3.048 CMMC L3 AU.3.048 Audit and Accountability Collect audit information (e.g., logs) into one or more central repositories. Shared Microsoft and the customer share responsibilities for implementing this requirement. Organizations must aggregate and store audit logs in a central location to enable analysis activities and protect audit information. The repository should have the necessary infrastructure, capacity, and protection mechanisms to meet the organization’s audit requirements. link 8
CMMC_L3 AU.3.049 CMMC_L3_AU.3.049 CMMC L3 AU.3.049 Audit and Accountability Protect audit information and audit logging tools from unauthorized access, modification, and deletion. Shared Microsoft and the customer share responsibilities for implementing this requirement. Audit information includes all information (e.g., audit records, audit log settings, and audit reports) needed to successfully audit system activity. Audit logging tools are those programs and devices used to conduct audit and logging activities. This requirement focuses on the technical protection of audit information and limits the ability to access and execute audit logging tools to authorized individuals. Physical protection of audit information is addressed by media protection and physical and environmental protection requirements. link 2
