Cisco IOS Switch NDM STIG Version Comparison
Cisco IOS Switch NDM Security Technical Implementation Guide
There are 15 differences between versions v2 r2 (April 23, 2021) (the "left" version) and v2 r4 (July 27, 2022) (the "right" version).
Check CISC-ND-000250 was removed from the benchmark in the "right" version. The text below reflects the old wording.
This check's original form is available here.
The Cisco switch must be configured to generate audit records when successful/unsuccessful attempts to log on with access privileges occur.
Review the Cisco switch configuration to verify that it generates audit records of all logon attempts. The configuration example below will log all logon attempts: login on-failure log login on-success log If the Cisco switch is not configured to generate audit records of successful/unsuccessful attempts to log on, this is a finding.
Without generating audit records that are specific to the security and mission needs of the organization, it would be difficult to establish, correlate, and investigate the events relating to an incident or identify those responsible for one. Audit records can be generated from various components within the information system (e.g., module or policy filter).
Configure the Cisco switch to log all logon attempts as shown in the example below: SW1(config)#login on-failure log SW1(config)#login on-success log SW1(config)#end
